Hi! I graduate next December with my BSN. Does anyone know of any residency or training programs for new nurses, that offer free or affordable housing? I will need a place to stay in order to move from mississippi/ Alabama to work.

I google searched jobs for new grad nurses. Jobs popped up in several states listed as, '' New grad RN residency program''. The description was training for new grad nurses and a commitment to the facility.

I'm talking about the part of offering housing at free or low cost. That would be on you. If you move to another area, you could ask recruiter if they know of any low cost housing options, but never have heard of that as part of a package

Some employers will offer relocation assistance. It was $3000 for my residency program. I’ve never heard of one offering free or low cost housing.

What facility did you complete your residency program? I really need help with housing. That sounds good! Also, if you could provided me with the names of any other facilities that off that kind of assistance. Thank you!

Im sorry for putting my words into the wrong context! I meant relocation assistance. That is what I need.

Indian Health Service offers very low cost housing and they will train new grads. And they have student loan repayment also. They will also move you. You do have to relocate to a reservation though. I just retired from IHS and lived on the Navajo reservation for many years and I loved it.

So, I do not have to be a Native American to live on the reservation? I am a Aftrican American, with distant native American ancestry.

I want to work in the ER as a nurse but the job requires at least one year of experience as a nurse.
