    Where at in Mississippi are you? I'm in Northwest, MS (Southaven), and I believe that Baptist DeSoto offers a program like that. The drawback, however, would be that they would want you to go to their school in Memphis.

    Thanks, I'll check with them - that's where my brother works.

    I haven't contacted any hospitals re: scholarships yet, I'm still (IMPATIENTLY) waiting on an acceptance/rejection letter. LOL

    Manna:


    You might also want to check out the scholarship offered by http://www.msnurses.org/ (Mississippi Nurses Association)

    You can also look at the scholarships page on my website (http://www.nursingstudy.com/cgi-bin/csvread.pl) ... there are lots of scholarships listed there that you may be eligible for.

    Finally! A place to get some answers! I'm thirty and presently teaching school. I begin nursing school in August at HCC. I am very nervous about paying for everything-not only school, bills, etc..., but medical benefits (i'm not married). I am sooooo excited about pursuing nursing and am not naive that it will be a lot of hard work, but I was hoping someone, somewhere would be willing to help. Whitfield? What is that like? Any input would be much appreciated!

    I was wondering what is really like working there. I realize they have a lot to offer a nurse, but wonder if it is just too hard to work there...has anyone had that kind of experience?

    I worked as an RN at Whitfield for 4 years. I loved it! I only left because I found an equally rewarding job at our local county jail. I was an "Ed Leave" nurse. Once I was accepted to nursing school, I applied at Whitfield. They paid me a monthly salary in return for a 4 year commitment to work there.

    I didn't find it hard to work there at all. In fact, the last year I worked there, I was a supervisor.

    Thanks so much for responding. The offer sounds too good to be true. What was the salary like? How long ago did you work there? Did you work there at all while attending school? Did it take you four years to reimburse them or did you choose to stay that long?

    Thanks a bunch,

    Beth
