First off, I'd like to say hi! I'm new here. And I'm sorry if I put this in the wrong forum, lol.
I have a question. I'm a senior in high school, and I live in Texas, the Houston area, and I want to go to Tomball Community College to take my pre-reqs, then apply for nursing school (I want to get my associates).
I was just curious; I've heard of hospitals paying your way, and that that are some ways they do this; that after you're certified you either have to work for them for some amount of years, or volunteer, sometimes they pay it off, or they pay if you choose to get a higher degree. But would I qualify for that? And if I did, would they pay for my pre-reqs or only nursing school after I got accepted?
Also, when contacting HR at a hospital, how would I ask them? Lol. I know it sounds weird and it's not that I'm embarrassed or anything, I just don't know what I would say/ how to ask.
So if you know how would go about doing all of this, please help me, lol. I would really appreciate it.
I'm clueless when it comes to these kinds of things.
Thanks so much.

Also, BlueMalibu, where are you where new grads make so much!? NPs don't even make that much here. . .I can't wait to move away:/
I'm in Northern California... sunny 'C'!
My sister completed PA school about six months ago. (PA's and NP's attend the exact same training here) She is working for an oncology clinic here now for 138 a year, so no, the wages aren't bad here.
