    There are many hospitals that are willing to provide tuition reimbursement for LPN's to continue their education. When I was getting my degree we had several LPN to RN students join our class. All but one of them had a hospital reimbursing them for tuition. Their facilities also worked with them on scheduling their shifts to fit around their classes.

    I plan on starting work on my Masters next year and my hospital has already agreed to pay tuition reimbursement and help with scheduling.

    Good luck.

    The VA system is particularly good about doing this.

    Thank you so much for your replies. Where I work we do not have tuition help and I am thinking about going the distance learning route. I wish you well on your masters I am sure you will do very well. Unfortunately VA is not an option for me. Thanks again.
