Hi Iam new here

  1. hello,

    I was wondering if anyone could help me with a problem... does anyone know of ways to get paid to go to nursing school? I am 22 yrs old with a 5 yr old son (single mom), i work fulltime right now and go to school full time (health studies cert.) But i am looking into a LPN course at my local vocational school and i will not be able to work and attend class(they are both days and i cant work nights who would keep my son and when would i ever see him?) does anyone know about any program that can help.

    thanks for any advise

    Look around for hospitals who would be willing to pay your tuition and they usually hire you as a pt tech also, so you can make some money. You'll owe them 2 years or so after graduation, but sometimes it worth it. Good luck to you! I always wondered how people can make it though nursing school, with its intense day-time schedule, if they have no family and financial support.

    Talk to the financial aid office. Usually they've got the inside line on any sort of help you can get in the way of work, loans, grants, etc.

    Scholarships, grants. Check with the financial aid office. I get scholarships, b/c I don't qualify for grants. I work and go to school during the day. So I already have an income. But I get more money in scholarships than I pay in tuition and books, which is nice. Apply for everything you can!

    A lot of hospitals will help you. You could also do weekend option. A lot of hospitals offer that. You work 2 12 hr. shifts between Friday and Monday, and get paid for 36 hours plus benefits.
