Hospitals that Pay for Nursing School
Did you know that there are hospitals that pay for nursing school? It’s true! Research the hospitals in your area and assess the clinical partnerships of the nursing school you’re considering to find out if you may be eligible for financial assistance. Help with tuition can come in many forms from hospitals.
Here are a few examples:
- Scholarships: Some scholarships are based on merit and others are based on need. Either way, research and apply!
- Low-interest loans: Some hospitals offer nursing students loans at good interest rates so they can further their education.
- Grants: A grant from a hospital can help students in need pay for their nursing education without going deeply into debt.
- Work/study programs: A hospital may ask you to work in an aide or clerical position while you complete nursing school in exchange for money toward your tuition.
Do your research and form relationships with hospitals in your area. Remember, you don’t have to already be a nurse to begin working for a hospital that might pay for you to go to school. Take any position available to you and grow your career with your new employer’s financial assistance. Nurses with degrees are in high demand, so hospitals are ready to help you get your nursing education.
