Info on sources of money to finish nursing school

  1. help...am trying really hard to finish my Rn via Excelsior college. Am at the last step of the Clinical examination. I have returned from being overseas am now a Vet but there still not seem to be an easy way or acess to find money for those wanting to become Rns. Perhaps I am not looking at the right sites, while away I learned about the Nurses reinvention act signed by Bush yet there still does not seem to be any acess to such funding.
    If anyone has info ..please share...greatly appreciated
    Believe me I have tried via Veteran Affairs...they are swomped...
    thanks:spin:

    it's the sticky at the top of the nursing forum. there may be some websites mentioned in there for nursing scholarships.

    the only two i can think of off the top of my head are:
    www.fastweb.com
    www.discovernursing.com

    hope that helps!

    Do you have an idea which hospital you want to work at? If you do, I suggest you talk to the nursing recruitor there or human resources and find out what kind of loan forgiveness loans they have of scholarships. A lot of hospitals have them and they'll pay off your loan and you work for the hospital of your choice! Theirs!
