RN Programs

  1. 0
    My boyfriend friend girlfriend is an RN and she said that there are RN programs that are offered like LNA programs. If this is true would anyone know where? She said something like they pay you in exchange you work. It's similar to LNA but its for an RN. Anyone knows and they could let me know I would appreciate it. Thanks!

    I'm not sure if this is what she meant... but if you work for a hospital (as an LNA or tech), most will pay for all or part of your RN education. They usually allow you so many dollars per year towards tuition. Generally it's enough to pay for tuition at NHTI/NHCTC. Some then require you to work for them for 1-2 years as an RN after graduation.

    There are also some programs where facilities will sponsor you- pay for your education with an agreement to work for so long after graduation (without requiring you to work during school)

    A friend of mine works at a LTC facility as an LNA. In exchange for them paying for her RN education she signed a contract stating she agreed to work for 2 years at the facility after graduation. The good thing is she does not have to work full time during the 2 years after graduation. So she gets paid to work while she is in school and also gets her education paid for.

    Best of luck to you.

    What do you have to do as an LNA?
    That sounds like a good exchange to me.. I was thinking of entering NHTI for nursing..... and its expensive.

    Well, I work in a nursing home as an LNA. The area I work in is the Rehab so people are constantly coming and going. I first started looking around nursing homes to see if they offer programs for becoming an LNA, in exchange you work there for a certain amount of time. If I couldn't find one then I would have to pay the Red Cross to get my training as an LNA. It took me six weeks for my training, then I took my state tests and passed. Now I want to become an LPN, because I can be an LPN in one year or under a year. The program cost alot, but at least I would be an LPN. If I didn't answer your question I am sorry.
