    SLU accelerated BSN tuition

    Oh hey, thanks for your reply. I checked out their website and it looks like they only offer the tuition reimbursement if you have been an employee of St. John's for 90 days or more. But the loan repayment assistance is very helpful, as long as they will still offer it in the future. I called their human resources and left a message for someone to call me back. Thanks for the help!

    SLU accelerated BSN tuition

    Oh I know! It is so frustrating. I wish school financial aid wasn't so difficult to get sorted out. They really should try to make this kind of stuff easier on us. I cannot send private messages either, I am not sure why. When you find out, please let me know. So you are beginning the program with me? Yay! I don't know anyone else in the program yet, so I am happy to talk to you!

    Illinois Hospital tuition assistance

    I am interested to see if anyone has any resources on any Illinois hospital's tuition reimbursement benefit. I am beginning SLU's accelerated BSN program this month and am facing the reality that I may no longer be able to cover the costs of this program. I am receiving limited federal aid, and I am forced to look into other financial options. I know that many of the St. Louis area hospitals provided agreements with students to give them x amount of money for school in exchange for working for them for x amount of years. SLU Hospital had a great setup last year where they would give you $5,000 for each semester in exchange for 3 years of work. Then they would continue to help with outstanding loan balances each month while you continued your employment. This and more was what I was counting on last year when I applied and began working toward starting the accelerated program. Can anyone offer me any resources on what the current benefits are for tuition assistance from hospitals in Illinois? I have heard so many different things from so many different people. Some say that those benefits have been shut off entirely due to the economy, while some say that nursing students are still eligible. Then some say that only current employees working toward becoming a nurse are eligible. This is very stressful, and aside from sitting down and calling every single hospital system in the state, I don't know who to talk to. Financial aid staff at the school have little to offer on this subject, and I am beginning to think that I am simply going to have suck it up, scrape together a million loans, and graduate $50,000 in debt, in addition to my other loans from my previous degree. Any information anyone can offer would be tremendous.

    Thanks for the heads up. This is so stressful! I just wish things would get figured out already! Do you know much about the Nursing Education Loan Repayment Program through the HRSA? I wonder if that would be an option for me...I remember reading that they will repay 60% and up to 85% of your outstanding student loans if you agree to work in an underserved area for x amount of years. That's about all I know though. The website doesn't give too much info about details.

    Welcome to the Missouri State Forum!

    This site is a godsend. I recently stumbled upon it in search of some information about financing my absn. I live in south St. Louis and will be attending SLU's accelerated BSN program at the end of this month. Nice to meet all of you, I'm sure you will be seeing a lot more of me once I begin the program!
