Am a non traditional student who has taken years and a few detours to get to the BSN program. I'm thrilled I got in, but then reality sank in and I started stressing about how we are going to pay for this! My husband has his graduate degree and makes decent $ but we have a family, house, cars etc to pay for. Anyway, I started applying for scholarships last month and although it is a royal pain (essay, reference letters, gathering paperwork) I have to say its totally worth it! For those of you in the same boat, do the work and it'll pay off!
