Earning a degree can open the door to new career choices. At Chamberlain College of Nursing, we're committed to helping you develop a financial plan that's right for you. Whether it's with the help of scholarships, student loans, grants or other funding options, your nursing education can be within reach.
We assist students in developing plans for financing their education through a combination of financial assistance programs (if eligible), family contributions, employer tuition reimbursement (when available) and the Chamberlain College of Nursing payment plans.

Scholarships are funds that, in most cases, you do not need to repay. Chamberlain College of Nursing offers its students both need-based and merit-based scholarships.
Many national, regional, and local groups and organizations also sponsor scholarships. Some of these sources are National Student Nurse Association (NSNA), National League for Nursing (NLN) and the state nurses’ associations.
In addition to federal financial assistance, state grant and scholarship programs may be available to students who demonstrate financial need or who have successfully achieved certain qualifications. Typically, state grant recipients must attend an institution in their home state, and they or their parents must have resided in the state for a specified period of time.
Some students may be eligible for employer tuition reimbursement benefits. Students should contact their work supervisor or human resources department to determine whether tuition reimbursement is available.
Students who may qualify for veterans’ educational benefits should notify their Chamberlain admission representative and meet with a student service representative regarding eligibility as far in advance of their scheduled start date as possible. Chamberlain is a participant in the Yellow Ribbon GI Bill program, which is available for eligible students utilizing Chapter 33 benefits.
Chamberlain offers a standard monthly payment plan for tuition, books and any required electronic materials. The standard payment plan accounts for expected enrollment and anticipated financial assistance. Additional payment plans are available for students receiving tuition reimbursement or military benefits. For more information and to determine eligibility, contact a student service representative.
