The VA National Education for Employees Program (VANEEP) was first established in 2004, as a way to help and retain nurses in the VA. Nurses who are accepted into to this program receive a full salary and up to $40,117 toward the cost of higher education, including tuition, registration fees and books( VA, 2020). This program provides students with tax-free scholarships and replacement-salary funding to accelerate the completion of a degree in an approved academic program for a Title 38 or hybrid Title 38 occupation. Those who are part-time or full-time may apply for this program. The only downside or upside, if you look at it as you are gaining experience, must incur a 3-year commitment to the VA. Those who fail to uphold a 3.0 GPA may incur a repayment, however those who graduate grow their career debt-free.
