Home > Careers > Education Assistance Programs > Kirkwood Community College: Earn + Learn
Earn + Learn is a nursing education assistance program that can put you on a path to starting your nursing career with little to no debt. Mercy Medical Center has partnered with Kirkwood Community College to invest in nursing students while providing them with valuable on-the-job experience. And, the opportunity to secure a full-time position immediately after graduation provides a clear pathway for your career.
As a student enrolled in Kirkwood’s LPN or ADN program and depending on when you join Mercy and the Earn + Learn program, you may be eligible for more than $24,000 in education awards, plus additional bonuses and incentives. You will also have the opportunity to apply for additional scholarships through the Mercy Foundation.
And, as a Mercy employee, you’ll be able to take advantage of traditional employee benefits, like a discount in the Mercy café, free and convenient parking, and more!
The deadline for Kirkwood students to enroll in the Earn + Learn program for the fall semester is Monday, August 15, 2022.
Increase your post-graduation commitment to 24 months and be eligible for an additional bonus.
The earlier a student joins the program, the more money they will be eligible for and the more experience they will gain for their nursing career. The amount awarded per semester will be based upon the student's estimated financial need (EFC) up to $6,000 per semester for full-time students and $3,000 per semester for part-time students, not to exceed $24,000 total.
