5 Top Hospitals That Will Pay for Your Education

5 Top Hospitals That Will Pay for Your Education

NursingLink

Many hospitals offer some form of tuition reimbursement or loan forgiveness, but these five hospitals do that, and more. From staff development classes to on-site degree programs, these hospitals virtually pay you to go to school. If you are lucky enough to land a job at one of these prestigious hospitals, you will find not only opportunities for educational advancement, but also concierge services, employee health clubs, and on-site child care.

    I am currently a CNA in Oncology at Virginia Mason Medical Center in Seattle. They are a WONDERFUL hospital to work for. I start an associates degree nursing program in January. VM will pay up to $1000 per quarter for tuition reimbursement. The contract states that you must work at least 20 hours a week while for the duration of the program, maintain a GPA of somewhere between 2.8 and 3.2 (sorry I can't remember of the top of my head) and agree to work at the hospital for one year after graduation. The only catch is you have to pay tuition up front, but they reimburse you at the end of each quarter if you qualify. And, as far as I know, you are eligible for this benefit at your date of hire. My manager has been extremely supportive and flexible with my schedule. Another benefit is that the hospital will provide all of the vaccines and CPR training required by the nursing program at no expense to you. This junk adds up quick and will save you lots of moulah!

    If you need help financing your education otherwise, there are always Stafford Loans, scholarships, and grants. It sucks taking out loans, but you don't have to worry about paying them back until you are done with school and have a killer salary as an RN!

    In response to some questions below, I would NOT recommend working in the US without a license. Most state governments offer CNA courses for free or reimburse you after you get a job at a long term care facility. These courses are usually only a month long or less. For people with RN licenses from other countries, bite the bullet and take the NCLEX in the US. Working without a license is dangerous and impractical. You may be able to find employment privately without a license, but job security, malpractice insurance, benefits, and competitive wages are much more likely with a valid license.

    I am an LPN/LVN, who graduated in 1991- the school was located in a level one trauma, teaching hospital and was so lucky to get my first position within this hospital in the ED, my next position was in Oncology , then a office maneger for a Cardiologist, then returned to the same hospital in texas by the way, and help open their new step down unit, surgical, also worked in the step down unit , medical. also the SICU, for my training. all of these positions were word of my mouth from previous employers and worked for many years without having to search for jobs.
    I must have made a good name for myself, now I find myself in Wisconsin, where LPN's are only used in Nursing homes and clinics.
    I feel like I am wasting all my education and experience, I have been ACLS certified, am IV certified, certified also for Cardiac Monitoring.
    I would love to go on and get my AA in Nursing, but single as I am, need an employer who will sponcer me, have many great recommendations from physican's etc.
    Are there any Hospitals with programs to work there and help pay for school if I sign a contract to work for them for any number or years???
    Able to relocate....
    If there are any generous donors out there I am also willing to pay back a personal loan at the going rate, so I could study full time
    Thanks. I can be reached at maryellenowen2@yahoo.com

    Wow! Does anyone know of a hospital in Denver, CO or surrounding cities that comes close to these benefits? I am a CNA, but not working at the time. I'm looking to start in May '09. I want to advance in my career so tuition reimbursement is important and I also have a 7 1/2 mo. old baby girl so on-site day care would be phenomenal.
