    tuition is right around 28K/yr. no waiting list (at least not that im aware of). i dont think its as competitive as many other programs due to the
    tuition and perception that the program only takes 4.0 overachieving snotty kids. the program is awesome and if i had to do it again, i would. let me know if got any more questions..

    I'm finishing up my first semester at Emory and I have the NEAT scholarship as well.

    I second what blee said. Emory has a great program and I've really enjoyed this semester.

    There are a couple of students at Kennesaw State University that are receiving scholarships from Children's Healthcare as well. I would go to the websites of the various hospitals and look under the employment area. Usually there is information about the tuition/employment contract.

    Most area hospitals will offer scholarships and tuition assistance after your first year of nursing school. Many also offer PCT and Nurse Extern positions that will allow you to work PRN while in school (this pays pretty well - most of us earned $11-$15/hr while in school).

    Piedmont Hospital partners with Georgia Baptist College of Nursing and has their Piedmont Scholars program that pays a lot of the GBCN tuition in exchange for working at Piedmont.

    Northside Hospital offers scholarships to rising seniors.

    Gwinnett Medical Center offers scholarships to rising juniors and seniors who participate in their Extern program and/or work as a PCT there.

    I believe Dekalb Medical and CHOA also have scholarship programs. Look at their websites.

    That's all I know of right now in terms of scholarships. There is other aid available. For instance, Atlanta Medical offers $10,000 worth of loan repayment when you work there as an RN.

    Hope this helps!

    The State of Georgia also has service-cancellable loans and all you have to do is work in GA at a facility that takes medicare and medicaid. Check out the Georgia Higher Education Assistance Agency.
