I heard MSN programs can get paid for?
- 0Sep 24, '10 by thenewguy8I thought I had read something on here about how, b/c of the great need of NPs right now, there are ways to get your degree paid for. Is that true? I think what I was reading about referred specifically to primary care fields.
Is it a loan reimbursement program? I'm not sure I would qualify for loans (do they look at just income or also assetts in your name, like investments?).
Any info would be great - just trying to find out everything i can.
- 1Sep 24, '10 by juan de la cruz, MSN, RN, NP GuideI'm aware of student loan repayment through HRSA: http://www.hrsa.gov/loanscholarships/index.html and an Advanced Nursing Education Traineeship: https://www.cfda.gov/?s=program&mode...5353be31eb69ac. I qualified for the latter when I was in my MSN program. They paid my tuition for up to 8 credits each semester in my program (I think the payment and the number of grantees vary by school). There is no employment commitment and it is not need based.

It pays the majority of my tuition (at the in-state rate as I am charged out-of-state resident tuition - my university waives out-of-state tuition if you receive funding over a certain level) as well as a monthly stipend. There is no employment obligation or repayment required. You are subject to meeting certain criteria. HRSA traineeships/fellowships are awarded by your academic institution if you meet the eligibility criteria and they have funding available. The HRSA traineeship is excellent - I would advise you to get in touch with your financial aid officer or scholarship coordinator to see if this might be an option for you.
