Full-ride scholarships?

  1. I recently got lured into moving to a small town in Texas because my grandfather claimed the college (West Texas A&M University) was offering a full-ride scholarship to nursing students so long as they promised two years in the Texas panhandle post-grad.

    He was mistaken. What he meant was he would pay for my college education so long as I remained in this little hell whole. Excuse my language. Now I'm trying to find a way out of Texas, but I could only manage a move if I obtained a full-ride scholarship. I have a 3.5 grade point average and most my pre-requisites complete.

    I was wondering if any of you could point me in the right direction of where I could get a list of hospitals/colleges offering the real deal...

    Thanks so much.

    I attended a program here in Colorado that was called an "accelerated"
    program. I signed a contract with a local hospital to work for two years after I passed the NCLEX-RN and they paid half of my tuition for nursing school. It is not a full ride, but it worked for me. Does that sound like what you're looking for?

    So you would rather obligate yourself to some unknown hell-hole of a hospital if they pay for your nursing rather than live in Texas? How bad can Texas be?
