I would like to take out little to no loans for nursing school. I'm looking at almost $33,000 per year in tuition. Are there any hospitals that offer tuition assistance in Oklahoma?

Where are you considering attending that will cost so much? Even a BSN should not cost that much. My ASN was like $8000 total, if that.

To answer your question, most major hospitals have loan repayment options on the condition you agree to work x amount of months per $$$$ awarded. I know that St. Francis in Tulsa has a scholarship for nursing students. I'm not sure what all it covers, but several of my friends went to Tulsa Community College and had most, if not all, of their schooling paid for in exchange for agreeing to work for St. Francis for a number of years after graduation.

If you are Native American, the Indian Health Services has a scholarship where they pay for nursing school and even provide a stipend for scrubs, in exchange for working for them for 2 years after graduating. If they cannot find you a job within 6 months of graduating, you are relieved of your obligation. However, the Indian hospitals always need nurses so I don't see that ever happening.

One of my best friends became an LPN and Work Force paid for her schooling, scrubs, books, etc. I'm not sure if she had to do anything in exchange but I do know she doesn't have a contractual work agreement with any one agency, so there's that. You might contact your local Work Force office to see what your options are and what the details regarding that are.

But most tuition assistance / scholarship programs only pay up to about 3,000/year. Good luck. I say find a less expensive school. That's a lot of money

That sounds like a private school for sure. Not ocu as they are 40k a year maybe ORU. I would say get your BSN so you don't have to do a career track program. Also, apply for the state programs like ECU, OU, OCU etc. I go to OU only paying 20k for 2 years. Best of luck getting in grades keep increasing!
