Hey all!

Does anyone know of any hospitals/medical centers in Jacksonville FL/St.Augustine (surrounding areas) that pays for RN tuition in exchange for work contract ?

These programs (and there are VERY few of them) exists primarily in rural, underserved areas.

so few, I know...that's why they are so hard to find. I know nurses that have done them in GA & NY. But any in Jax?

Jacksonville is still one of the biggest cities in the country, yes? So it's far from rural or underserved. You'd have to go relatively far from Jacksonville to find that sort of area.

We actually have quite a few critical shortage facilities, that offer care to the underdeserved/ low income areas. Some in west & north Jax..and sprinkled throughout the beaches area for the homeless population.

"Underserved" means there is a shortage of healthcare professionals in a geographic area. Jacksonville is not an underserved area.
