Hi, I am thinking of moving to the Indianapolis in 1-2 years to be closer to fiance's family and was wondering if anyone knew of specific hospitals that pay 100% or at least 6 hours/semester for graduate NP/CNS tuition. Around here all the hospitals directly affiliated with university's pay the whole $ if you go to their affiliated grad school whereas the rest just pay like 2-4K/year which doesn't end up covering much of the year's tuition. Of course I would like to work somewhere great, but at this point with my huge payment for my undergrad loans I just can not see taking out lots more loans for grad school (since I defninitely wouldn;t end up making lots more $ than as a staff nurse). I have tried calling a couple hospitals to find out what they offer, but they have all been very tight lipped saying it would be discussed if I were to interview.
So, if you know of anywhere that pays essentially the full-ride for grad school (at their affiliated school or others), please post the hospital name and any details you know. Or if you have details about how much tuition reimbursement for Grad school others hospitals offer please post that.
I didn't know that Lpn's and Rn's in indiana were only making between $7 and $9 an hour... Wow, maybe I am going to college for the wrong thing!! I checked last week and IU kokomo does NOT have a waiting list for their nursing program and neither does University of Indianapolis and if you look around there are probably more schools that don't have waiting lists.. Did you ever think that in order to get into these nursing programs that you have to work for it and its not something that is just automatically given to you.. They make it competitive on purpose b/c they only want the best in the program and want you to finish.. They don't want to waste their time if your going to fail or drop out b/c thats not fair to someone else who could have been in that spot that deserves to be there. If you really want to go to nursing school then you will find a way to pay for it.. Why not get a student loan (one that you have to pay back!) so you can get your education.. Come on, its a loan that will help you to better yourself and something that is worth the money.. An education is priceless!! There is another person who posts on here and she took out a loan for $10,000 so she could get her R.N. I just honestly feel that if you want an education that bad you would take out a loan or find a way to pay for it.. There are sooooooo many financial aid options out there regardless of your income or if you already have a degree or not..
