I undersstand you get a 10,000 sign on bonues(5k now, 5k later) but how many months can you recieve the 1000$ monthly stipened? I heard it was 24 months. The nursing program I will enter is 5 semesters instead of 4 which is obviously more than 24 months. If 24 months is the max can I recieve the stipened the first 24 months and then pay the last semster myself? Or is it required to have graduated within 24 months of being signed into the NNCP?
