Tuition Assistance

Tuition reimbursement programs provide financial assistance for direct costs of education.

Many hospitals provide financial assistance to employees who wish to pursue continued education in relation to their careers.

Check with your employer to see if they will reimburse for the direct costs of coursework that you will be taking at an accredited academic institution.

Some of the standard requirements that most organizations require are:

  1. application for tuition reimbursement prior to the program enrollment
  2. evidence of having paid reimbursable fees, a fee receipt
  3. evidence of successful completion of the coursework (grade report)


National Federal Loan Program (NFLP)


This is a government funded loan program that institutions apply for and then disperse to full time and part time nurse educator students. The Student Affairs Director and/or Financial Aid office at the institution that you are applying for can tell you if the institution provides this loan opportunity.

Application Process

Applicants must complete an eligibility form and an application.
To be eligible, the applicant must:
  1. Have a complete FAFSA on file
  2. Be enrolled in the MSN program-Nurse Educator track in good academic standing
  3. Be a full-time or part-time student
  4. Not have default or judgment on a previous federal loan
Qualifying students will submit the notarized eligibility form and the application to Student Financial Aid.


The recipient must be a full or part-time student for two consecutive academic terms to remain in good standing. If the student does not remain in good standing, then the student will have to default. Loan pay back is at a 3% or current rate.

There is a nine month grace period following graduation. Service and loan pay back begins following the grace period. The service commitment requires 4 consecutive years of service as full time faculty in a school of nursing. The recipient can serve anywhere in the U.S. The 15% loan amount balance will be paid at 3% or at the current interest rate. The loan recipient may have a longer time for the 15% loan amount pay back, up to 10 years or longer.
