Holy crap, someone actually replied.
I looked at other offers like the state BSN "scholarship
" which is basically 10,000$ in exchange for 2 years in a medically underserved area.
Compared to the 8,400$ net from LBM, its a difference but not a huge difference. OTOH, thats if you manage to spend the 10k on non-taxable expenses, which excludes room, board, and transportation (the biggies). You also have to work in a "medically underserved area", whatever that means...
There is also a BSN "loan repayment program" which is also 2 years but you can get up to 10,000$ of loans repayed per year for 2 years. So from a financial standpoint, that may make the most sense if you are likely to be 20k in debt in the end (like me). But then again, I dont know what a "medically underserved area" is like, and with all ive heard about new nurses caving under pressure, Im not sure if I want to dive straight into the trenches.
