100% tuition reimbursement is available through the State of NH for all private pay LNA students. Private pay is any student who pays for the course without using a grant, scholarship or VA funding. Once a license has been received, and employment secured in a long term care facility in NH, the student can then submit their receipt for reimbursement. We provide directions on how to apply for reimbursement to all eligible students once they have paid in full. Full time, part time and per diem positions all qualify for reimbursement. You can apply for reimbursement your very first day on the job, there are not any terms in place requiring you to work for a specific amount of time. If you have questions about the reimbursement program, please contact the Admissions Office.
If you are receiving funding through a scholarship, grant, employer or other 3rd party agency an authorization in writing from the sponsor will secure your seat in class.
