Question about tuition reimbursement at hospitals

  1. Who here had tuition reimbursement from their work place?
    How much do they usually repay?
    What are the strings attached to get them to help pay?


    If you also have anything else to add please do so

    Thanks

    At the hospital where I work, the p/t employees are eligible for up to $900, & I think the f/t is $1500. You have to apply for it, & after you finish school, you have to work for the hospital for either a yr or 2, or you have to pay it back.

    The hospital where I'll be working offers up $4,000 for senior year tuitiion reimbursement in exchange for two years of working there. It's a great place to work though, so I win both ways.

    At the hospital i will work at(I hope) this is how it works. You work for them for one year and they pay your first years tuition, you work for them a second year and they pay your second year. I am not sure how it works for a BSN program.
    edited to add that there is a yearly max payment of 6,000

    My hospital pays $1000.00 annually for fulltime employees in good standing, and $500.00 for parttime employees. There is no provision for PRN nurses.
    You must obtain a grade of C or better in undergraduate coursework and a B or better in graduate courses to receive payment.
    Payment is made approximately three weeks following submission of receipt of payment and your grade report.
    There is also a provision that if you terminate employment within one year of receiving reinbursement you must repay the money.
    I have a problem with this stipulation, but what can you do?

    Where I work, it is $3500/yr. for FT, & $1000 for 20 hrs/wk or more PT. No requirement to work afterward, but you have to be working here for 3 or 6 mos. before you apply.
    We are also starting an on-site BSN completion program in the fall, with a state university, which will have full tuition repaid. That does have a work requirement.
