Nursing Scholarships


The Lantern Review PMHNP scholarship program is here to support the psychiatric nurse practitioner student. In addition to our PMHNP nursing scholarships in 2018, we have added several articles which will help you once you pass the ANCC exam.  Our mission is to deliver an up to date, comprehensive PMHNP Exam Prep course that focuses on your learning needs.  The curriculum is divided into specific sections across the lifespan which conclude with exam questions. This means that you will always know where exactly your opportunities for improvement exist, well before taking the ANCC Certification exam.  The Lantern Review PMHNP Exam Prep program is free of charge to those who have failed to pass the PMHNP exam and have purchased a review program from another vendor (Send us an email and we will help you out).

The Lantern Review PMHNP Exam Prep to offer Annual $500 Scholarships

At the Lantern Review, we value nursing education and helping those in need. We also understand that higher education can be a significant expense and understand how challenging it can be for students to make ends meet. Between tuition, text books and fees, the cost of attending graduate school can easily rise into the tens of thousands of dollars, if not more.

In an effort to make things a little easier for students, we are pleased to begin offering an annual scholarship (October: winner will be announced). The Lantern Review now offers an annual $500 scholarship to nurses who are currently attending or planning on attending PMHNP graduate school within 6 months’ time. Check out our 2018 winner….
