I was actually paid when I did my nursing qualification.Yes, it was absolutely worth it. Had less than 10k in debt from my nursing degree. My hospital has a loan payoff thing where you agree to work for (at least) 3 years and in return, they pay off your loan. So, zero debt and I make very good money for my area of the country. In fact, I am actually working a regular full time position at my ‘home’ hospital and I’m working as a ‘travel nurse’ at a local hospital. I’m doing this to have a nice chunk of $ set aside. Plus, I need a new bathroom…have some water issues, so it’s a must. This way, I can pay cash. Only owe on my house, pretty much…still have two (small) hospital accounts to pay off, which I should have paid off next week.
