I do not know about a traditional program, but it would be impossible to work in the OLOL accel. program. However a wonderful benefit with a nursing degree is that most hospitals will pay back your school loans and there is a government program that will pay you somewhere around $40,000.00 to work in a depressed area for 3 years and honey, NO fits that bill.
So far as we know WIA is paying $6,000.00 of our school expenses and Tulane is picking up the other $5,000.00. Then Tulane pays us a stipend of $600.00 a month to go to school; they consider us employees. Of course you have to agree to work for one of the 200 hospitals around the nation under the parent company of Tulane or pay back the money after graduation. The pay after taxes however (not having received a pay check yet) is reportedly around $325.00, that is what a 15 hr part time job would pay. WIA is supposed (repeat that word) to pay us an additional $10.43 per day that we are at school.
Also be aware that OLOL is starting this same program at West Jefferson Hospital in NO. What separates the students in these accel. programs is that you have to have a 4 yr degree and all the pre-reqs that are required before being accepted.
