Will hospitals pay for graduate education?Register Today!
- by jam752 May 19, '11I was wondering if anyone knew if it's typical for hospitals to pay for graduate education. I have a friend who works at a major hospital in Philadelphia, and she says that if she wants to get her master's at the hospital she currently works at, they'll pay 90% of the cost, and if she wants to go anywhere else, they'll pay 70%. Is this a normal benefit for nurses, or does she work at a hospital with amazing benefits? Thanks so much for any input!

- May 19, '11 by loriangel14The hospital I work at doesn't help at all.I don't know of any that do in my area.
- May 19, '11 by chicagonurse2bThe hospital I work for will pay 100% of nursing school education (regardless of level) but up to a certain capped amount per year. I think with certain organizations, we just lucked out! Tuition reimbursement certainly is hard to find period, in the current ecomomy.
- May 19, '11 by foreverLaurOne hospital in my area will pay for 10 credits/quarter if you attend their program. The other will pay 100% of the tuition for a ADN at a local community college and 100% of the tuition for an RN-BSN at a local university. Nothing else is paid for.
- May 19, '11 by classicdameThe hospitals in my county offer tuition reimbursement and pay according to the published tuition charged by University of Texas. That is how I got my BSN and MSN. I do not recall the percentage but it was a lot. I also got scholarships in my MSN program that covered books and other expenses. Any help is appreciated of course.

You just had get it pre-approved and then give them proof you passed the classes.
- May 19, '11 by BobbkatMy hospital will pay for $4000 a year towards education. They do have some pretty good scholarships available too for nurses working towards advanced practice degrees, but I'm not sure how competetive they are.
