Likelihood for job to pay for schooling

  1. Quick question for all you practicing CRNAs. Did you get an offer to pay for your tuition for school from your first job. I'm just wondering how frequently this occurs while I am considering how much to borrow for CRNA school.

    No, and I would not advise it. You want to be locked into where you work after graduation? Because that is what the payback would entail. I say get a loan and go into debt. With the money you will make after graduation, you will be able to afford to pay it back.

    How many of you had employers pay off loans once you were out? Is it likely to find a respectable salary and have 30k of loans paid per year?

    Thanks.

    Its possible but not likely. You will however find groups that will give a sign on bonus that you can put towards your loans.

    As far as the original question. If you know where it is you want to work when you are finished and they are willing to pay for school then it can be a good gig. You will owe them at least 2 yrs of work however.
