Supporting Nursing Education

Owensboro Health can make it easier for you to become a nurse and sharpen your skills. Turn to us to for hands-on educational opportunities and financial assistance.

Educational Assistance Program

When you’ve been accepted into an accredited nursing program, review the program guidelines and apply for educational assistance that helps pay for your tuition, books and other school-related expenses.

For each semester you participate in the Educational Assistance Program, you commit to working six months full time as a Registered Nurse at Owensboro Health after graduation. 

Ask two people professional references (work, school, church or community official) familiar with your nursing goals to complete an endorsement form on your behalf to include with your application. Apply by July 1st. for Fall semester assistance and January 1st. for Spring semester assistance.

Last Semester Tuition Reimbursement

You may qualify for reimbursement of part of your final semester’s tuition if you:

  • Work at Owensboro Health
  • Graduated from an accredited nursing program
  • Didn’t receive educational assistance from us while you were a student

Nursing Residency

If you’re a new graduate in your first year working at Owensboro Health, our nurse residency program allows you to spend a full day each month learning more about health care. You’ll develop skills in and gain knowledge about a variety of medical departments.
