    Hello I know that all the hospitals in the Lehigh Valley are willing to pay for your tuition while you are in a nursing program. they won't pay for your GE's but for the actual nursing program yes. they usually have an agreement with the financial aid offices of local community colleges and the other colleges as well. Usually you do have to agree to work for them for 2 years. But to answer your questions about hospitals, St Luke's in Bethlehem has there own diploma school and do offer financial aid or loan forgiveness and paid tuition programs.

    well don't know where you live but Gracedale in Lehigh Valley is a good place to work, I hear. don't know what the ratio is but usually the LPN's do all the treatments and pass meds. RN's are usually just the charge nurses and oversee everything. this is my experience from clinicals there. but if you are willing to relocate it might be a good move for you and your family

    Does anyone know of a Hospital in Philadelphia or South Jersey, that offers money for school in return for service after graduation? I have already been admitted into a program and now I'm trying to figure out how to pay for it. Any help would be appreciated.

    Yes, there are hospitals out there who will pay for your education. In return, you are required to sign a 2-3 year contract. Here's the kicker that a few nurses I work with have found out: once you are off orientation, the hospital starts to deduct a sum of money from your paycheck to cover "taxes and interest" which is around $200/month. Their student loan payment would have been less! I was not a part of this program so I am not familiar with all of the details. It's just something to think of prior to signing on the dotted line.
