    Oh hey, thanks for your reply. I checked out their website and it looks like they only offer the tuition reimbursement if you have been an employee of St. John's for 90 days or more. But the loan repayment assistance is very helpful, as long as they will still offer it in the future. I called their human resources and left a message for someone to call me back. Thanks for the help!

    There was no AGMSN program in 2008 when I did the ABSN. If there was, I just might have done it!

    Just thinking about it, i would be intimidated by the idea of going from knowing next to nothing about nursing and being an advanced practice nurse in only 21 mos time. But I guess thats what a lot of PAs do!

    Good luck to you.

    whoops, I just read that its not an advanced practice program. Well, I don't really know that much about it.....
    but would just wonder in the end, if there would be any real difference in the amount of money you make with a Master's verses a Bachelor's degree. Even with a specialty degree, will you be hired with no experience, to be an expert in your field and lead others in this higher paying role? Is it worth the extra time in school and extra tuition spent?

    after reading the brochure about it, I do see the potential there, and see that they are trying to elevate the nursing profession, guarantee quality care, etc

    But real life is real life, and sometimes you just wish you didn't have all that debt, especially when you are working alongside a damn good diploma prepared RN who knows her stuff and makes just as much money as you do

    Cheers!
