Moving Careers Forward

- U.S. News and World Report Magazine ranks UH Manoa Nursing among the best nursing schools in the nation and ranking consistently rise every year.
“In 2009, I joined the U.S. Navy and served our country for 6 years. I have always wanted to become a nurse and dream to reenlist as a Navy nurse to save lives. I received financial scholarship that supports my nursing academic journey, and it has truly made a huge difference for me. I am thankful for the benevolent hearts who help students like me become the best nurses we can be.” – John Cary Nuez, Undergraduate Nursing Student Veteran, Class of 2019
NAWSON is committed to offering education and academic progression for nurses with associate degrees, master’s entry into nursing for second career students, advanced practice specialization, and doctoral education. Unfortunately, due to national calls for educational reform in nursing and the effort to improve the delivery of health care, the demand for NAWSON programs outstrips its ability to accept all qualified applicants.
As enrollment grows and tuition increases, so does the need for support for our students. Your gifts make a difference in the lives of our students, and help build the pipeline of qualified, culturally-sensitive healthcare providers for our future.
