St. Luke’s Employees

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

Beginning August 2022, eligible St. Luke’s employees will have all tuition and most fees covered upfront!

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.


Terms and Conditions of Tuition Coverage:

  1. Must be a St. Luke’s employee working 16 hours/week in a budgeted position
  2. Must earn a passing grade of “C+” or better in each prerequisite
  3. Students must apply to the St. Luke’s School of Nursing and sign a two-year commitment to be employed by St. Luke’s as a nurse
  4. Coverage does not include cost of application or registration fee, entrance exams, uniforms, stethoscopes or books

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.
