Hello, I'd like to open a discussion about HCA and the contract that they make you sign when you go through their residency program for nurses. I quit a month or so ago, and I got the letter where they are asking for the money back. I contacted a lawyer because I know of someone who got a out, talked to a lawyer and was not required to pay anything back. However, due to the coronavirus the lawyer is taking forever to get back to me (social distancing, doing everything through email and phone). Has anybody have experience with this and got out? I appreciate the help.

Hello,

I know HCA recently changed their reimbursement policy for continuing education this past year. I was going for my RN to BSN online, and had to take a year off. When I started school again, I read their changed reimbursement policy which was stating that I had to commit to two years of work. If I left before those years, I owed the amount of money that was reimbursed, back to HCA. However, before this, I had already worked for HCA for 8 years and I don't recall their previous reimbursement policy requiring nurses to work for them afterward. I was hoping there was some sort of "grandfathered" policy for people like me, but apparently there isn't. So when I did return to school, I decided not to apply for their "reimbursement". If I happen to leave HCA in the next year or so, I wonder if they will say I owe them back as well. I know this doesn't help answer your question, but I do feel like HCA does not look out for their employees or staff, so I'm not surprised they're trying to go after you for this.

Hope you find someone who can help you get out of this...

Hi all! Sorry this is a little off topic, but I'm curious why you're quitting. I was thinking about applying to the program. Can you provide any insight about the program?

Hope you get the answers you're looking for!

If you do an AN site search for all the posts concerning HCA, you'll find a lot of reading to make you think.

I've never worked for them, but after everything I've heard about them, I never would.
