Johns Hopkins Hospital--does anyone know if they will pay toward your schooling if..

  1. 0
    you agree to work there for a set number of years after you graduate?

    Sorry, I know that's worded awkwardly..

    I want to attend JHU more than anything I've ever wanted in my life. But things are getting scary, in that I was accepted after the merit scholarship deadline passed, and I have no co-signer for private loans (oh, and since I'm just finishing up my first degree, I haven't been working full-time for the last couple years).

    I'm willing to do anything, whether it be high interest rates or writing scholarship essays until my fingers fall off..

    If anyone can help me with the JH hospital question or any loans that don't require a co-signer, or basically ANYTHING, I would be ETERNALLY
    grateful!! :angel2:

    edit: I've looked at the site, and I know they will pay towards your schooling if you already work there. I'm just hoping they're like the hospitals down here that will take a chance on an unknown kid, so to speak!

    Hi. Johns Hopkins Hosp does pay tuition for both p/t and f/t employees. Are you going to be working p/t while attending school at Hopkins? If you are, then you should be able to get tuition assistance. Hope this helps.
    I am attaching a link that might help you.

    I used to work on the IMC unit there about 5 years ago. That area is is not the nicest...so please be careful. Not trying to scare you, but I know the area.

    Good Luck!!

    Thanks so much for taking the time to reply, funnygirl!! :1luvu:

    I don't mind working while I'm in school (I'm taking the traditional 2-year program)--I just wonder if they have anything FOR me while I'm in school. Any ideas?

    That, and/or if they'll pay toward my tuition and I agree to work for them after. I don't know what you would call that kind of agreement..contract?

    Anyways, thanks again for everything!! Hehe, yeah I keep hearing time and time again what a scary neighborhood the hospital and school are in, but I guess it doesn't phase me because I'm from New Orleans. Then again, I might come home from my trip next week shaking in my boots!! :roll

    You are most welcome Peachy & congrats in getting into JH!! I am sure they will have something for you to do. I worked with wonderful techs who were going to school at JH, and they (the unit) was very flexible with them due to their schooling. All the techs I worked with were awesome. I liked the doctors/surgeons that frequented my unit, they were pretty nice & easy to get along with....also very helpful.

    Actually it is not too bad in the day light hours, however night-time, I would use caution. I have visited New Orleans several times & each time I truly enjoyed the areas that I been too. I guess there are unsafe/bad areas in every city. Oh, really love the food there!

    Also, there is also a smaller campus/hospital...Bayview, it is part of Johns Hopkins too on Eastern Avenue, in the Highland town area. I am sure there are pleny of positions open there as well. There are also transits/buses that will pick you up/take you to your street as well.

    Best of luck to you! Again, congrats!

    Peachy, call the hospital and talk to their HR department. I don't know if they'll pay up front, but they may have a loan repayment program. Duke pays $33K back in loans for you for three years of employment.
