Nursing educational awards for new graduate nurses for college tuition or registered nurses in refresher programs.
This tuition program is only for new RNs who have completed their basic BSN or ADN program, have successfully completed NCLEX and are licensed as an RN in Kentucky. This award is available to December 2002 or later graduates. Recipients will receive tuition reimbursement paid per year for up to four years for BSN and two years for ADN with each payment repaid for one year of full-time service as an RN.
RNs completing a refresher course must have an active Kentucky RN license. Registered Nurses who have completed a refresher program will receive a one-time payment and agree to work for one year at 0.5 or greater full-time employee (FTE).
