Samaritan covers up to $10,000 of your cost to become a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN)!

Apply today by filling out the form below!

Samaritan and Jefferson-Lewis BOCES are partnering to offer current and future Practical Nursing students a sponsorship to help cover the costs of this one-year nursing program.

The Practical Nurse (PN) Community Sponsorship Program is a new program open to all community members. With up to $10,000 of additional support from Samaritan, many applicants may be able to pay for the PN program with little to no student loans. The Sponsorship can help with other expenses beyond books and tuition as well.

Samaritan LPN’s have so many options for employment—in our Clinics, Home Health, Surgical Services, Long Term Care, and more. There is room to grow and an opportunity to be mentored and develop your nursing career.
