Will My GI Bill Pay for an AS Degree in Nursing?

Q: Hi, I am thinking about attending Concorde Career Institute to get my associate’s degree in nursing. I am not sure if this is a VA-approved school, and really wanted to use my VA benefits to cover tuition. Would my VA benefits cover this? My husband is active duty and I am receiving the Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits. Thanks!

A: I looked the school up (actually there are four listed all in the state of FL) and it appears as though they are VA-approved. None of them have any VA approval information listed, but all of them, except the Miramar location, are listed as Yellow Ribbon Schools, so that tells me they are VA-approved for the Post 9/11 GI Bill. Also three out of the four have a listing for an AS in nursing. The Orlando location was the only one that didn’t list nursing.

When you say “my VA benefits” are you talking your own GI Bill or benefits transferred from your husband? I ask because it will make a difference if you get the housing allowance or not. If you have your own GI Bill, you will get the housing allowance, however, if you are using transferred benefits, you won’t, as long as you husband is on active duty.
