    If you work full-time they will pay for nursing school. You have to give them two years on return.

    Hey , I am a current employee and nursing student starting this fall! As a employee you receive 3500.00 per calendar year. If you are a nursing student at west penn hospital , than you will owe them 2 years and if not like me you can not leave the hospital 12 months after each payment you receive , if you do leave for any reason just make sure it's after the 12 months lol! Besides that its a great reimbursement plan and a lot of nurses I work with use the money for there BSN program! Good luck on your future endeavors!!

    It all depends on if you are a CNA or not! It can also depend on if you have experience, most people who have a certification and experience make more! We also do phlebotomy and do ECGs that factors into it as well. I do believe that starting out with no experience and without a CNA license it is around 10 dollars an hour.
