Central Maine Healthcare is committed to helping our nurse team members advance their careers. For nurses with a two-year degree who wish to earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, we offer loan repayment to help defray the high cost of a furthering their education.
How the Program Works
CMH’s loan assistance program begins once a nurse completes his or her degree. While nurses continue to make the required payments on their own student loans, CMH also makes payments, allowing nurses to chip away debt more quickly. Assistance payments increase over a period of three to five years.
Our goal is to help nurses achieve a higher level of education while comfortably being able to pay down student loan debt — a situation that benefits nurses, the health system and our patients.
Benefits for Nurses — and Community Health Care
Hospitals and healthcare systems across the country — including CMH — need nurses who are dedicated to quality health care and learning as much as they can to help patients. We want to enable nurses to increase their knowledge base and provide the best care possible, all while knowing that student loan debt will not prevent them from achieving their goals.
Becoming a registered nurse can cost as much as $104,000 for a BSN. Advanced degrees and accelerated programs can add to the cost. If you are interested in furthering your nursing career, consider joining the team at CMH and learn how we can assist you.
