Will hospitals pay for graduate education?

  1. 0
    I 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!

    The 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.

    One 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.

    The 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.

    The hospital I worked at as an aide paid $2000 a year towards education of non-contract employees education and $3000 a year towards contract nurses continuing ed.

    You just had get it pre-approved and then give them proof you passed the classes.

    My 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.

    5500 a year, not including their scholarship program which I think is another 5k. That will cover your Master's. Hospitals vary on their coverage. Her's is pretty good.

    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.
