Does anyone out there know how the Sentara Scholarship works? I have read information that they will pay for your last year of school if you agree to work for them, but does this affect your pay, or the hospital that you work at? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

I got the Sentara Scholarship last year. The scholarship I recived was $10,000 and I owe them 2 years of full time employment. Check into it, I'm not sure if they have changed it at all since i received it! good luck! I think you can go to www.sentara.com

Does this scholarship effect your pay or assignment as a new grad?

Not as far as I know. I asked them when I signed my contract. I hope she was right. Guess I will find out in October!

I received the scholarship. It does not affect your pay. You have to pay taxes on the amount of the scholarship. They put in 200. extra in my pay, taxes are applied, then the 200 comes right out back out. This is done every time I get paid. This will be done for the two years that I will work for them. I wanted to work a Sentara anyway, so it was a win-win situation. The scholarship is nice because I don't have to worry about paying a student loan for my BSN.
