We encourage all students to consider various avenues to manage the cost of their academic program. There may be a number of resources available, including tuition assistance from your employer, scholarships funded by professional organizations, and loan forgiveness programs based on service.
Many students are eligible for tuition support through their employers; check with the human resource or benefits administrator at your place of employment to find out what kind of tuition benefits are available to you.
A variety of nursing- and health-related organizations offer scholarships to graduate nursing students. The application deadlines are often in the spring for the following year, so it’s important to search for funding early.
Many health care professionals take advantage of loan forgiveness programs. Your admissions counselor can provide you with information on programs available in your state of residence, and we also encourage you to contact your state department of health and human services for information.
