    Most of the major hospital systems provide tuition reimbursement for employees without the need for a contract later. This is part of what allowed me to become an RN when I worked for a hospital blood bank.

    I know that some hospitals in Houston, such as MD Anderson, has what they call a nurse cohort program. Well, first, you have to be an employee for 6 months and want to pursue nursing. Basically, they pay you $4000 as tuition reimbursement. But for every year that you accept the money, you are agreeing to work for them after you graduate. I think it's a win win situation. But, getting a job there can be very difficult unless you know somebody who is currently an employee.

    Good luck with everything. If there's anything I can help answer, just ask :spin:

    Baylor All Saints received a mega endowment a few years ago that is used explicitly for paying for nursing school for employees. I don't know what the work contract requirements are, but I know you are obligated to some extent. There are LOTS of CNA's who are going to RN school courtesy this money. The most recent one I knew worked a few shifts a week and had her tuition and books completely paid for courtesy this fund.

    In the Dallas and Fort Worth area, the company that owns the Presbyterian, Harris Methodist, and Arlington Memorial Hospitals (Texas Health Resources) has a strong tuition reimbursement program. They also deliver on-site nursing school classes for ADN, BSN, and MSN programs through partnerships with El Centro and UTA. I believe this is overseen through their corporate education department.

    Methodist Hospital of Dallas also offers tuition reimbursement for their "in-house" RN program, it is also through El Centro College and you have to e an employee there for at least 6 months.
