tuition reimbursement/assistance

  1. I'm trying to research what hospitals offer tuition assistance for going back for grad school? Does anyone have a comprehensive list out there? I assume most places are going to be university affiliated hospital. Thus far, it seems my search is hospital by hospital, which is taking entirely too long. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    I don't have a comprehensive list, but every hospital I have ever worked with offered some kind of assistance or reimbursement for school. I am checking out new jobs now and click on the employee benefits section on line and so far I think they all list some sort of help.

    1.There is no comprehensive list.
    2. Hospitals, if they are not union with a contract, can change the amount of tuition reimbursement at any time. From a lot of money, to some money, to none. What is correct information today might not be correct next year.
    3. A hospital with great tuition reimbursement might be a terrible place to work.
    4. If all your interested in is having your schooling paid for, then join the military. 100% paid.

    I realize all of what ukstudent has said...it can vary year to year, horrible working conditions, join the military, etc. I just wanted to know if anyone has compiled a list of hospitals that offer help. And I didnt say or mean to imply that I'm only looking for a free ride, if I was I would have joined the military right out of high school instead of waiting til grad school.

    My hospital (and I'm going to guess many others) require you to be an employee there for a period of time prior to being eligible for tuition reimbursement. Then you also have to stay a set period of time after receiving the tuition reimbursement or repay it.

    To help with your list.
    WHC in DC is $10,000 a year for full time employees. Need to be an employee a year to get it and need to stay on a year after to keep it.
    Maybe if you collect enough information, you can post it for others.

    I also work at a hospital like this; you have to sign a contract to work there for a period of time after grad school is completed. If you quit before your contract is up, you will lose all of the financial reimbursement they provided and have to pay it back! (yikes!)

    It would probably help if we knew what region you are looking in. I work in a KC area hospital with no school affiliation and they offer $1500 a year and require you to work one year after the completion of the course. This was enough to cover around 1/3 of my classes for my Master's Program.

    It's hospital to hospital just like you've discovered, these is no list.
