Lower Costs for Teammates and Alumni

Now is the perfect time to advance your career with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) from Cabarrus College of Health Sciences! We’ve lowered the cost for teammates of Atrium Health and alumni of Cabarrus College of Health Sciences, Carolinas College of Health Sciences and Mercy School of Nursing.

Our Atrium Health Educational Loan Forgiveness program allows eligible students to receive up to $10,000 in loans. After a maximum two years of service at Atrium Health, your loan may be forgiven and repayment may be waived.

You can eliminate nearly all costs by combining the Atrium Health Educational Loan Forgiveness program with these other sources of funding:

  • Ed Assist: Designate your Ed Assist benefits toward tuition.
  • North Carolina Forgivable Education Loans for Service (FELS): Apply for loans from $3,000 to $10,000, depending upon the program of study. Only full-time students are eligible.
  • Grants/Scholarships: Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), and our financial aid office will award grants and scholarships to lower your tuition.

  • Five-week course blocks
