I am going to be starting a one-year accelerated BSN program at Johns Hopkins in June. As I'm sure many of you can imagine, the tuition is enough the break anyone in half. I'm sort of strange becuase I already have an MPH and ultimatly I would love to do L&D, mother/baby, OBGYN, or pediatrics with a community focus among underserved populations.
I have been looking into scholarships
and work repayment programs (i.e. where you agree to work at the hospital for the amount of time they paid your tuition, they also pay you a starting salary during the time you work there).
I'm a little nervous about doing this since I'm not sure what opportunities may come up while in school. While I need all the tuition assistance I can get, I am not sure if committing to a certain job may be the best thing for me. Does anyone have any experience, advice etc. about this?
