I'm a nursing student in serious need of money for school. This is my second degree and I just finished my first set of nursing courses. I was accepted into a nursing program for second degree transfer students. I did my first clinical rotation and loved it. The problem is I go to an expensive private school, and my loans don't cover my tuition. Unfortunately my credit is not that great so I don't qualify for private loans. My grades are great, but I can't find schlorships. Does anyone have any advise?
It is so frustrating. This country needs nurses, and there is no money for people who want to go to school. They rather get nurses from other countries, then educate able bodied individuals right here in America. Its madness!
If anyone has any advise, it will be well appreciated..

Do you have anything to back this up? The US has for many foreign nurses been under retrogression since Oct 06 and there are many many nurses affected and have been waiting since Oct 06 for a visa allowing them to live and work in the US. yes there is a H1b visa but usually nurses don't meet this requirements and most apart from this year went to other professions. I was affected by retrogression from Oct 06 until I moved to Canada and have now decided to stay here.
