    my dad always told me to go into nursing because he said that people who want to become a nurse gets their tuition paid fully. is that true? & he says he knows many people who had all their tuition paid for & didn't have to worry at all about tuition fees. right now, i don't seem to believe that. i'm having trouble paying off my tuition. i know that some nursing homes & places offer contracts for a certain amount of time & money, but i don't work at any. is there a certain place to go to get these people to help me pay my tuition? also, i'd like to know how some of you payed off your tuitions, if you don't mind. -choua
    [font="comic sans ms"]i'm probably about the same age as your dad, and it was kinda true then. i got 3 semesters paid in full. as far as the rest of my education -- i worked for it. i grew tobacco when i was in high school, worked as a wedding photographer, dark room assistant, waitress, maid, cook and bartender. and the rest i paid off after graduation, working as a nurse.

    I think it depends on the area. There are some hospitals who will pay part (or all) of your loans as a hire-on bonus.

    Well, I'm in PA (Pittsburgh), and what your dad is saying is true for hospitals in my region. I don't have to pay a cent of tuition for nursing school (valued at $14,000). Back home in Ohio, there were similar agreements that students made with a local private Catholic hospital. I would check with a private hospital over a public one to see if some sort of tuition pay off program is available for employees/future employees.
