The RN to BSN Program is a specialized Degree Program developed for those currently working in a Kaiser Permanente RN position who wish to pursue a BSN degree. BHMT-eligible participants receive a maximum benefit of $16,500 (covering tuition, fees and books) to attend an RN to BSN program through one of BHMT’s partner schools. Participants may also apply for the Individual Stipend Program (ISP) which provides funds for wage replacement while in school.

Ben Hudnall Memorial Trust (BHMT) has partnered with a number of academic providers who offer substantially reduced tuition and fees for RN to BSN programs. Only RN to BSN programs with our active, partner schools are available for the BHMT RN to BSN direct payment program. Participation in RN-BSN non-partner school programs may be eligible for the ISP, wage replacement benefit only.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to BHMT’s stringent requirements of its educational partners and the evolving nature of education, BHMT partner schools, programs and courses and their contents may change without notice.
