Become A Nurse Tuition Free at St. Luke’s School of Nursing

Eligible St. Luke’s employees have all tuition and most fees covered up front!

We are making it even easier for you to follow your dreams and become a nurse. Rather than traditional tuition reimbursement, where you pay out-of-pocket and wait to be reimbursed; we are now offering tuition coverage upfront to eligible employees. This represents a $26,000 value!  While a student at St. Luke’s School of Nursing, you will receive a laptop free of charge to use for coursework.

Additionally, if you have prerequisites to complete, we proudly partner with Northampton Community College (NCC) to cover the cost of prerequisite classes for our employees up front. Employees must still apply for the St. Luke’s School of Nursing program, follow application requirements, and be accepted. Additional fees apply.

Nursing wasn't on my radar, but that changed when I witnessed nurses caring for my loved one with skill, compassion and kindness. They were the inspiration for my career change. From manufacturing to nursing. I am a proud graduate of St. Luke's School of Nursing. Today, I am a Clinical Supervisor in Orthopedics.
