Philly Area Work Scholarship

  1. Can you tell me the names of the hospitals that are offering work scholarships? I have done searches and have not found any listed on the internet. However, I am sure they are some. I am in another state and is not familiar with the hospitals in Philly.

    This is my last resort plan for nursing school at Drexel.

    Thanks for replying and the information. However, the majority of the information is for schools other than Drexel. I have been accepted to Drexel. Also, since this is a 2nd undergrad degree for me, I do not qualify for Pell & other grants, just the loans. However, I am not giving up; not yet!

    Take out loans, loans, and more loans. Several hospitals offer some sort of tuition reimbursement when you start working for a few years committment. Last I checked Jefferson Health System was offering $15,000 for 3 years and Tenet was offering $20,000 for 3 years. Of course, that's before taxes, so your $15,000 will end up being more like $11,000. And if you don't stay the designated amount of time you don't get to keep the money. Also, I got some money through the H1B program-- not sure if there is still funding through this or not. Also, you may want to check out PHEAA, they will offer some loan repayment if you work for a participating hospital.
