MHN launching nursing tuition assistance award program

Mountain Health Network (MHN) is launching a nursing tuition assistance award program to help students pursue a career in nursing.

The MHN Nurse Tuition Assistance Award Program covers the cost of nursing courses, books, resources and fees for students admitted to St. Mary’s School of Nursing. The program also provides up to $5,000 per semester for four semesters to selected students admitted to another participating nursing school.

In order to qualify for selection, students must:

  • Have a 2.5 overall GPA
  • Agree to work as a registered nurse at Cabell Huntington Hospital or St. Mary’s Medical Center for five years, upon graduation

Students must maintain a 2.0 overall GPA to remain in the tuition assistance program.

“We know that the cost of education can often be an obstacle for students wishing to pursue a career in nursing, so we are excited to be able to offer this opportunity to area students to help them achieve their goals,” said Susan Beth Robinson, JD, Chief Human Resources Officer for MHN.

Opportunities at participating nursing schools are available for graduating high school students as well as students who are already enrolled. To apply for the program, students will need to follow the scholarship application guidelines for their selected school.
