For those interested in pursuing a career in nursing, our Moonlight Program in Practical Nursing at BVT helps its graduates launch nursing careers at a time when professionally trained skilled nurses are in high demand.

Wendy Harper, a 58-year-old nursing student pursuing an LPN degree in our Moonlight Program, left her job as a software developer to become a nurse and care for others. She is the proud recipient of a $1,000 F.A. Davis Fall 2023 Nursing & Health Science Scholarship, which she will use to further her education and training.

The company is dedicated to developing teaching and learning products that meet the needs of nursing and health science students, educators, and practitioners. Scholarship applicants had to be enrolled in an accredited program for the fall 2023 semester, a student in good standing with an overall GPA of 3.0 or higher.

Wendy said, "I am glad I enrolled in the PN program at BVT. I enjoy the instructors, class size, learning new things, and expanding my knowledge. As a graduate of this rigorous program, I can confidently pursue a rewarding career in nursing using my skills and training to make a difference in the lives of others."
