Tuition Reimbursement

Tuition Reimbursement covers courses toward a certificate, a diploma, an Associate’s degree, a Bachelor’s degree, or a graduate degree in a healthcare related field.  Your program of study must have a realistic potential for a full-time position in a healthcare facility.  All courses must be taken at an accredited educational institution.  A listing of accredited postsecondary institutions can be found at

Tuition Reimbursement also covers short-term trainings, workshops, conferences, or online courses in a non-degree or non-credit program taken for the purpose of skills enhancement and/or career advancement in the healthcare field.

Study at home programs are eligible, if the program of study itself is eligible.

If your program of study doesn’t fit the above, the Fund will reimburse you for prerequisite courses such as English and Math and some electives that are required toward your degree. Please check with the Training Fund office if you have any questions about this.

The maximum reimbursement is $4,000 per semester.  You may be eligible to be reimbursed up to three (3) times per calendar year.  The maximum reimbursement for an LPN program is up to $4,000 for 4 Terms.   You must receive a grade of C or better in your coursework to be eligible.

Textbooks, nursing uniforms and other materials required by the school for your classes will be reimbursed at 100% in addition to tuition and fees.  Notebooks, pens, and other school supplies are not reimbursable.  Items considered multi-use such as computers, printers, cameras, or casual clothing are not reimbursable.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) requires that employees receiving education or training benefits (including tuition reimbursement) at or above $5,250 in a calendar year must pay income tax on the benefits above that amount.

If you are notified by the Fund office that tax forms are required because your current reimbursement will bring you annual total over $5,250, then you must return the tax forms within two weeks of this notification.

Please refer to the Eligibility page for more information on initial eligibility for benefits.
