Nursing Discount Verizon Overview
by Allison Cruz | Updated 2/5/23
Verizon has 4 main discounts for people working in nursing. These promotions are available for both Verizon Wireless and Verizon Fios.
In this article, we’ll walk you through how much you can save with a nursing discount from Verizon, who is eligible for these savings, and how you get this discount applied.
At BillSmart, we’ve helped thousands of nurses and Verizon customers save a ton of money on their bills.
While the Verizon nursing discount is a good place to start to lower your bill, there’s other opportunities that you can take advantage of to save even more on your bill.

How Much Can The Verizon Nurse Discount Save Me
The Verizon Nurse Discount (Nurses Unlimited) can save you up to $160 a month on your plan.
You can get this discount whether you’re an existing or new Verizon subscriber.
How much you’ll save depends on how many lines you have. The discount for a single line is $10 a month. For 2-3 lines, it’s $25 a month per phone while for 4+ lines it’s $20 per month per line.
These savings will apply to your entire account, so your entire family doesn’t have to go to nursing school.
Another fun thing is that Verizon only offers discounted plans for nurses and doctors aren’t eligible to save.
Score one for the real heroes.
Who Is Eligible For The Verizon Nursing Discount
To qualify for the nursing discount with Verizon, you need to be a nurse or respiratory therapist.
Some of the types of nurses that Verizon mentioned as absolutely eligible for this discount include registered nurses, nurse practitioners, licensed practical nurses, and licensed vocational nurses.
Unfortunately, you need to currently be working as a nurse or respiratory therapist. Retired nurses or nurses in training are not eligible for this discount.
Verizon checks your eligibility once a year by forcing you to revalidate your employment.
The way they do this is by checking you have an active National Provider Identifier (NPI) number.
You also must be an account owner or account manager. If you’re not one, it’s easy to make yourself an account manager on your Verizon plan online.
The Verizon nursing discount applies only to postpaid, not pre-paid plans.
They really made this discount an exclusive club.
How To Get Enrolled
There’s two steps that you need to go through to get your Verizon nurses discount on your account.
The first is to confirm that you’re eligible for the discount using a tool Verizon called id.me.
Create an Id.me account and link your certifications if it’s not showing up already.
Once done, finish making the changes to your Verizon plan. Verizon’s website is old so your discount doesn’t show in your shopping cart when you make the change online.
Generally, Verizon will send you an email confirmation that the discount has been applied to your account.
You’ll then have to wait for 1-2 billing cycles for the plan change to take effect.
Alternatively, you can just get Verizon customer support to put the discount on your plan by calling them.
It might take a bit longer but if something goes wrong, you can get courtesy one-time credits from Verizon because they messed up the changes to your account.
Verizon Fios Nurse Discount
Verizon also offers a discount for nurses who have Verizon Fios.
The promotion is $5 off a month for 300mbps plans, $10 for 500mbps plans, and $15 off for gigabit plans.
Depending on how discounted your plan is, this will be a 10-20% discount every month.
Existing and new Verizon customers can both save with this discount. The eligibility requirements are the same as they are for Verizon Wireless nursing promotions.
How to sign up for this discount is identical as well.
In terms of your home service, you can’t stack other affinity offers like a first responder or military discount.
However, you can get a nursing discount on both your Verizon Wireless and Verizon Fios bills. That can save you a pretty penny.
Verizon Packages For Nurses
Verizon also offers cheaper plans for nurses for their wireless and fios service.
These packages are hard to find because you need to really dig into their website as they’re pushing other promotions.
For Fios, the typical plan offers are 200mbps/500mbps/1000mbps for $49,99, $69.99, and $89.99.
Nurses can access plans with speeds of 200mbps, 400mbps, and 1 gig for $34.99, $54.99, and $74.99.
The discounts range from $10 to $15 a month. It’s a pretty good way to get a lower fios bill.
It’s worth doing if you don’t need very high internet speeds and you don’t qualify for some of the other promotions Verizon gives to bundled wireless customers.
For Verizon Wireless, nurses have a special version of the Welcome Unlimited plan.
For 4 plan lines, instead of paying $25 a month, you can pay $20 a month per line which will save you $20 a month.
If you’re looking for affordable service, this might be the right plan for you.
Please note that your data will be slowed if the network is busy and that the plan will be more expensive if you need to get a phone from Verizon.
