I was wondering if there were any nurses out there from the state of Kansas? I have been told that my state will pay back your tution, only if you are going into to nursing. Is this true if so watch out I am max my student loans LOL!

A search of nursing shortage tuition kansas in GOOGLE led to 978 references.
But beware, there is no such thing as FREE tuition....there is always a catch..possibly 2 years hard labor on the worse shifts on the worse floors as repayment of your tuition.

The closest to free tuition I have found was a VA scholarship. The payback was one year for each year of tuition paid. But the year was at regular wages, same choice of shifts and wards as any new RN, 5 weeks vacation/year, etc. You have to set this up while still in school, of course, like any scholarship.
