The Great Scholarship Chase

  1. Does anyone have any information on available scholarships for LPN to RN bridge programs? I just saw the bill for my first semester and am in sticker shock! I can get some tuition assistance from my work and a student loan for some of it, but the rest will be my burden. I can cover this first semester I think, but I need to look to the future to continue. I don't have a nice house I can second mortgage.

    Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you everyone!

    wow, where i go to school the tuition for the 1 year mobility program is only about 4,500 dollars. i work on a SNU at the local hospital, and they are paying 100 percent of tuition and books.... all the costs are covered... but i have to work for them for a year after graduating, but its a good hospital, so i dont really mind. check with local hospitals, usually they have "scholarships" as mentioned above (the work to pay back kind) good luck to you. ohhh, by the way, i work only weekends, and cashed in my IRA fund, which allows me to work part time and still have enough to pay my bills.

    Visit the NLN (National League for Nursing) website. If your RN program is accredited by the NLN, there's a chance that a scholarship might be out there that perfectly fits you. Good luck with your hunt for money!

    I agree FroggysMom I'm in the same position. I tried narrowing down options on the Johnson and Johnson site which left yet a large selection to look through. The hospital I work for offers a scholarship - only available once you're in the actual nursing program. Soliciting HELP, I live in Ga.
