I am graduating in less than a month and am SO thankful I am an EAYL grad! I have worked at Morton Plant Clearwater for about 2 years now and that got me the chance to get my foot in the door with my manager. There are very limited job opportunities out there for new grads unless you are already working for a facility.
As far as the 3 year commitment, I really don't care because if I get bored with one area, I can go to another speciality or hospital. Also, if for some reason you don't get placed after graduation to a unit, they let you out of your contract.
This program is an amazing gift. Not only is your tuition and books paid for, you pretty much get paid to go to class and you get a job while in school to master your skills.
Are you in the program or just inquiring? PM me if you have any questions :)
