  1. Hello everyone...I'll keep this short. I'm a 29yo fem. who's trying to go back to nursing school. I live in Portland Oregon and I'm very interested in hospitals that pay your way and then you pay them back by working at their hospital. Anyone know much about this?

    I know that the Marquis companies will pay for your CNA...but in Oregon I have not seen hospitals paying for the RN portion. Some will pay for portions of your degree after you've graduated, and I know that Washington has a special scholarship which involves a committment to work in Washington for a number of years and they pay for portions of your degree after the fact...I hope this helps! I know other states do offer very good hospital-based scholarships (with the committment to work for the hospital for a number of years after graduation), but have not seen it yet in Oregon.

    If it does exist, I'd like to know about it too. :spin:

    See the link above to the University of Portland's website. Each year Providence Health & Services offers a number of scholarships to the University of Portland that covers tuition for your BSN in return of a 3-year work commitment. A couple of us on this forum (myself included) are Providence Scholars. It is a wonderful program!

    Hi, I go to Linfield and there is a program through Legacy Health Systems where you can apply for tuition repayment if you are hired and sign a contract for a certain amount of time. I think they pay $8000 for the first year. Also, if you work at OHSU as an employee of any kind and get into their nursing program you can get a discounted tuition price.

    Hope this helps!
