Hospital pay for you to become a Nurse?

  1. 0
    Hello,
    I am wondering if anyone out there knows how to find out if a hospital has a Nursing program that you can attend, and they will pay for you to be in it if you stay with them once you graduate. I have heard they are out there, but I am not sure where or how to find out where they are. I live right outside og Philadelphia - where there are lots of nursing schools, etc... Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.

    Brandywine Hospital in chester County has a forgivness program if you will work for them for I think 2 years. The school is on hospital grounds.
    Also, Tel Hai retirement in Honeybrook has a scholorship and you have to work for them for a year after graduation but you have to work for them during school too. If you would like more info let me know.

    several facilities have tuition reimbursement programs....also loan forgiveness.

    nursing loan forgiveness for healthier futures
    the pennsylvania higher education assistance agency (pheaa) and the pennsylvania higher education foundation can now help pay for your nursing education and help you achieve success in the field of nursing.

    to help recruit and retain qualified nursing students in pennsylvania, the "nursing loan forgiveness for healthier futures" program will help you repay your student loans. by working for a participating pennsylvania health care organization, after graduation from an approved nursing education program, you may receive student loan forgiveness for up to 25 percent (a maximum of $12,500) of your eligible debt over a three-year period

    The hospitals named in the previous threads-is admission to their respective programs contingent on whether you are actually eligible for any type of finanical aid, or can you still get into the program if you have a defaulted student loan & wage garnishment? 8By the way, I was directed to this site from some responses to a thread I wrote entitled "how to pay for LPN school". Thanks in advance for your help, advice, & responses.

    Sorry I missed this question earlier...
    Qualifying for admission to program is usually contingent on being offered financial aid. Default on student loans and wage garnishment prohibits receiving future government funding but not private funding.

    One would be looked at as high risk student, but with solid explanation and change in circumstance, amt $$ owed/paid back, all would be looked at by private school.

    The hospital I work for now has tuition reimbursement. I get $3000 as soon as I pass boards, and $3000 one year from date of hire, w/a 2 years contract. It may not seem like much, but I went to a community college and total cost was less than that. You just have to look around and check their benefit packages. Most will put that in them.
