    My hospital pays for graduate education. However, you have to commit to work for them for 2 years after you graduate.

    $2400/yr undergrad, $3600/yr graduate; they will do complete scholarship with a service contract for positions in need (ARNP). Most facilities I've worked for have had this type of comp package.

    I worked for another facility that did 50% after your 1st 90 days, 75% after 1st year, 100% after 5 years, but I think that's pretty generous.

    Can you direct me to the school where I can get a Master's for $10,500? Because mine has a ticket price of $40,000. I know that's high end, but I've never seen anyplace do it for $10,500.
    If you go 4 years part time you're getting $21,000. At my hospital though each year of assistance comes with a 2 year work commitment so that would mean an additional 4 years AFTER finishing the Masters if you take 4 years to do it.

    I guess it depends on the way the calendar works at your place. At mine, it's $900 per trimester, even if your school is on a different schedule. With my master's program, I end up losing one trimester so I only get $1800 a year. At that rate, it would take me 20 years!
