Prepaid tuition in California??? please help me!

  1. Does anyone know of any schools or healthcare systems that will pay 100% or at lease a good chunk of school tuition if you are employed with them?

    I know the university of pennsylvania health care system does. They pay 100% if u decide to go back to school to continue ur education while working for them either full or part time.

    I desperately want to move to california and at the same time go back to school for my masters for nurse practitioner. i have my bsn already.

    However, i'm in over my head in debt from the loans i took out for my undergrad degree that im trying to stay away as much from more loans as possible!!

    If anyone has any idea or suggestions, do tell!!! I really need some help here. Thanks in advance for any replies!!!

    How much experience do you have as a floor nurse? If you work at any of the UC's (UC San Francisco, UCLA, etc.), you can get up to 2/3's of your tuition paid for your masters provided you are working while you are going to school. Do a Google search and contact their HR dept.

    You can also apply for the National Health Service. They will help pay for your tuition provided you work in an underserved population for X number of years after you graduate. There are more threads on this topic if you search through the forums. Good luck.

    I was just reading how if you work for any Veterans Hospital they pay for an amount of your schooling go to the website and check it out. Just type in HACU Brochure in the search engine and it will give you some info.
