Hospital Sponsored RN programs--any left?
- 0Hello! Years ago I was invited into a hospital sponsored RN program which I stupidly didn't do. Now my husband is considering becoming an RN, but I canít find any information about this type of program for him.
Iím hoping someone is in or knows of hospitals offering this type of program & could give me some places to look into. We are in Indianapolis but we can relocate nearly anywhere within the US for the right program.
I might be using the wrong search terms ("hospital sponsored" nursing school & the like) so Iíd also appreciate input on that. Thanks in advance for your time! :heartbeat

- 0Thanks for the responses so far. I think I wasn't clear about what I meant--the program I was invited into was not only tuition free, but I would have been paid a salary for attending classes ( I think it was 10.00 an hour back then for 40 hrs a week in class/clinical). In exchange, I would have been contracted to work at the hospital for 2-3 years after I graduated. It was a difficult downtown location & they were desperate for RNs. We're looking for a similar program where the hospital will sponsor him through the entire program in exchange for a contract.
- 1Mar 2, '09 by smartin13I don't know of any that pay you to go there, however I do know someone who attends christ and they pay for it as long as you sign a contract, I'm not sure about the other place. If there is a school that will pay you to go there, and give you a job after let me know!!!
- 0Awesome, tuition free is great too! I didn't see that on the Christ website but thats great, thanks so much. I wasn't sure they did the other type either (it was nearly a decade ago) but if I do find one I will post it here. I just joined this forum today and I'm so glad I did. Y'all are so nice & helpful!
