Many employers will pay for coursework in your field, or even a certificate program. For example, lots of hospitals offer tuition reimbursement for their employees, and, according to Nursing Link
, some hospitals will pay for their licensed nurses to become registered nurses (and even offer other perks, like on-site childcare). Considering nurses make an average of $40,380 per year and RNs make an average of $64,690 per year
, it's clearly a sound investment in your financial future.
