How did/do you pay for nursing school? - Page 10Register Today!
- Oct 13, '12 by jessica91588I am borrowing money from my parent's savings for an Accelerated BSN program, but am also investigating the Navy Reserve. Any opinions from experienced military?
- Oct 14, '12 by kvinnaRNI opted to get my ADN first and went to a community college. I received some grants and scholarships but paid for the majority of tuition out-of-pocket. I now work for a hospital that provides tuition assistance so I may get my BSN virtually for free. Trying to convince other nursing students (who went to 4 year universities) that I was still a well-qualified RN even though I only had a 2 year degree was (and still is) quite the challenge. I chose the cheaper route because I did not want student loans, but then I got ridiculed by others.
- Nov 4, '12 by GotiffanyMy education is paid for by scholarships,grants, and a part-time job... thankgoodness.
-Florida bright futures Academic Scholarship
-First Generation Scholarship
All of this pays for my nursing school and all the money (from the grants and scholarships listed above) I get back after school expenses goes to help pay bills for my living expenses.
I go to a state-college (which was a community college)! It's cheaper and people are silly to think that you can't get a proper education at a community college! It also now offers a BSN program.Last edit by Gotiffany on Nov 4, '12
