Memorial Healthcare System, which runs six hospitals in Florida, pays up to $6,000 for two years of nursing school. Recipients of this tuition assistance must work for two years at a Memorial Hospital. Baptist Health South Florida, which runs seven hospitals, provides scholarships to nursing students.
Due to the shortage of available nurses, some hospitals are willing to offer scholarships and tuition reimbursement to individuals interested in a nursing career. In addition, many hospitals offer various incentives to attract and retain nurses, which can help nurses pay for any debts they incurred for their nursing degree. For example, Mercy Hospital in Miami provides retention bonuses and student loan forgiveness.
