How to pay for it all?

  1. 0
    I am a ADN, finishing up my BSN with plans to go on for my ACNP. I was recently talking to a pts family member who happened to be an NP in Cincinnati and when I asked him about how expensive graduate school was he chuckled and said "If you have to pay out of pocket, you didn't do something right." I was not able to get into details about how to do exactly that as I had spent too much time talking as it was and needed to go check on my other ICU pt. When I came back he was gone and of course was an out-of towner making sure grandpa was getting good care. So my question is How do I get my NP paid for? Any and all advice would be appreciated.

    A lot of employers (hospitals) help pay for education. Check with your HR.

    Many hospitals have tuition reimbursement programs, and if available become a TA (teachers assistant) at the school you are attending. Being a TA will knock off a significant portion of your tuition.

    There are some government programs that will pay for or reimburse in exchange for work in underserved areas around the US. They also pay for MDs and PAs.

    Really? I paid for a lot of my college degrees OOP. I'm 50000 in debt and expect to go another 10-15000 for my np. With my employer paying an additional $8200.
