JHG Texas Nursing Scholarship – News Updates

Myers-JHG Tutoring and Academic Support Center at TWU helps student nurses earn a BSN
The Myers–JHG Tutoring and Academic Support Center became operational in the Spring 2021 semester with an initial count of 35 active student participants seeking to improve their academic performance in pursuit of a BSN.  The center was developed by the highly ranked Texas Woman’s University College of Nursing in Dallas in partnership with JHG Texas.  A fully dedicated staff coordinator and 13 accomplished tutors serve student nurses at the Center. Tutoring is offered free of charge to student nurses at TWU and the tutors benefit from earned fee income for their services rendered.  Such fees are paid out of funds granted in part by JHG Texas.  For more information, please visit the Myers-JHG Center’s new website: https://sites.google.com/twu.edu/nursing-dallas-tutoring/home

JHG Pins were also presented to your student nurses to wear proudly on their “scrubs” when on campus and during their hospital rotations as interns.

JHG Texas members present JHG Nursing Scholarships to Sara Brown and Alisaeth Peralta. Both recipients were selected from a large number of TWU applicants based on their excellent academic achievements and financial needs. At Texas Women’s University well over 50% of students are from low income families who require financial assistance to help cover the estimated $10,800 per year in tuition, fees and related expenses.

JHG Texas Nursing Scholarships were presented to Nicole Pitts and Miranda Casey at the DCCCD Nursing Studies Program, where they may earn an Associate Degree Nursing (ADN). The curriculum at DCCCD transitions seamlessly after ADN graduation to UT Arlington’s School of Nursing and Innovative Health Care. After acceptance, students may pursue a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) and accreditation as an RN. 63% of students come from households earning less than 80% of median US income while the annual cost of attending the nursing school costs in excess of $10,000 annually.

JHG Texas awarded its first Nursing Scholarship in 2017 to Miss Sabia Sabharwal, who was selected from a group of 31 qualified applicants at the Dallas County Community College District (DCCCD).
