    The question was not out of line. I wondered the same thing when I began my trek.

    Over the years, there have been times when nursing students were offered very attractive deals. I remember the same being true for students studying to be elementary school teachers not so long ago.

    The amount of negativity mixed into this thread is really telling of the economic times we are in. I feel bad, and hope your future experiences on this board and in your journey are more positive.

    I agree....sheesh....

    Btw OP, there is Pinnacle Health in central Pa that still offer their "Become a Nurse" program. After a six month working period employees have the opportunity to go to school for nursing. During that time they have to still work a set amount of part time hours, but they will receive monetary assistance for school. You also need to give what I believe is a 3 year commitment to them after school. I know their website has more info.

    I currently have a scholarship with a local hospital and I do not work there. Once I graduate I have to work for them for two years. Good deal for me!

    As mentioned above, this used to be more prevalent than it is today. In the past, many hospitals would conduct special programs (loan payoff, sign-on bonus, pay for RN degrees) in order to recruit nurses. Now most hospitals do not need to do these types of incentives to attract RNs and applicants.

    Hospitals are businesses. They will do what they need to do to get and keep employees. If they do not need to pay for expensive programs to attract/retain employees, then they will not do so.

    Also, the hospitals that tended to offer the more attractive sign-on bonuses, relocation costs, loan forgiveness, etc programs were the ones that needed to offer these incentives to attract employees. They would often tie people into multi-year contracts to keep nurses there (at less than competitive wages). You would not see places such as the Mayo Clinic, Johns Hopkins, Sloan-Kettering, Cedar Sinai, etc needing to offer financial incentives to get nurses to work there.
