pls provide me an answer to this URGENT question!

U.S.A. California

Published

I am interested in signing a contract with any hospital that would provide scholarship.

does anybody know of any hospital in california that is signing contracts with nursing student in exchange for scholarship money. i am more about the contract than the money, because i want to use that opportunity to gain experience.

please could somebody tell me the number to call? the exact link, website, hospital and so forth? i will really appreciate it, and also is it advisable to sign a contract with a hospital to work with them for two years?

i need to hear about experiences from everyone concerning this matter. do they pay well? is there really a guaranteed position or is it part time. PLEASE I need answers urgently.

I am a nursing student and i have less than two years to finish.

Thank you and God bless.

i heard kaiser is doing the Kaiser Loan Forgiveness ... but i want to know more about other hospitals cos the Kaiser Loan Forgiveness is shaky these days.

Specializes in Psychiatry.

Hmmm.. I'm not from California, but have you done an exhaustive internet search?

In this market, esp in CA I hard, new grad jobs are few and far between, especially finding a hospital that will pay your tuition. I wish you well....

Best,

not sure if you know this, but most grads are having a hard time finding a job. As such I am very doubtfull you are going to find any hospital that is going to pay for you to go to school, its just not necessary for them to do so with so many new nurses looking for work. If you have a chance with kaiser, go with it, but please be sure to use better grammar and spelling, I hear they look for such things (I am bad with those myself, but am putting myself throught school and don't plan on stoping until I have my masters).

and i appreciate all the nurses here... everyone watches out for others' ..like a brother and sister's keeper and that is awesome...:D

Specializes in Pediatrics.

I am in Oregon, and the Kaiser system here puts some of thier own employees threw school, there is a seperate cohort that has Providence, Kasier and State hospital employees, about 18 students in the cohort. One of the students was in my ethics class and we were talking about it. The hospital system pays your tution and books and you owe them 2 years once you graduate. Which isnt bad at all considering no one in my area is hirring new grads at all. I dont know if you are already accepted into a program, but that could be something to look into.

Sorry if my spelling is off, but I am not at work, interivewing or applying :yawn:

Specializes in Family medicine, Cardiology, Spinal Cord Injury.

there are a lot of scholarships out there for nursing students. however scholarships don't guarantee positions in hospitals.

the job market in California is saturated with new grads right now. Hospitals can pick and choose their nurses, and most of them are going to hire BSN degree new grads over ADN new grads.
