Benefits and Expenses


Students are given a $1,000 per month stipend paid bi-weekly. If it becomes necessary to extend the program beyond 52 weeks (medical or other emergency), no additional stipends will be issued during that time. The maximum amount of time allowed for program extension is four (4) weeks.

Students will sign an Agreement for Services Contract during orientation, which distinguishes them as students, not employees of the institution. Because of this, we cannot offer paid work hours at any hospital with Cottage Health System in addition to the formal training program.


Additional benefits include:

  • Health and dental insurance
  • 10 discretionary days off
  • Lab coats
  • Hepatitis B vaccine is offered to students free of charge

Student expenses are estimated to be approximately $500, and include:

  • Required textbooks
  • Exam fees for licensing / board exams
  • Minor expenses incurred in connection with field trips and seminars
