Washington Health System Greene Offers RN’s More Green with New Tuition Repayment Program


According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ the demand for registered nurses is projected to increase significantly over the next decade due to an increase in preventive care; growing rates of chronic conditions, such as diabetes and obesity; and the rising healthcare service needs of the baby-boom population.

Washington Health System Greene is putting a positive spin on this demand by offering a new Tuition Repayment Program for Registered Nurses. This program is designed for new hires and existing RN’s of WHS Washington Hospital and WHS Greene in exchange for a two-year full or part-time service agreement at WHS Greene.

To qualify, RN’s must first provide proof of outstanding student loan debt, upon which time WHS Greene will pay up to $10,000 in return for a two-year full or part-time service agreement. The employee may reapply each year for an additional $10,000 loan repayment (or the full amount of outstanding debt if under $10,000) in return for an additional two-year full or part-time service agreement at WHSG. Each Registered Nurse may qualify for a total of up to $30,000 in maximum loan repayment in return for six full years of service at WHSG. Before any payment is made the RN will be required to sign a legally enforceable promissory note and begin employment at WHSG, if not a current WHSG employee.

To apply for one of the Washington Health System Greene Registered Nurse positions please go to whs.org/careers. Any existing employee interested in participating in this program should contact Mary Hoyer at 724-250-6040.

Disclaimer: WHS reserves the right to limit the number of employees who participate in the repayment program. Any employee terminated during probation or for performance or disciplinary reasons will be required to make repayment in accordance with the promissory note.
