    HRSA, and military scholarship. Schools have scholarships for students that are not posted so be sure and fill out school application.

    thank you very much for your reply!
    I've heard about HRSA but couldn't apply since i got accepted after the application deadline.
    I'm also going to contact my school financial aid office to check out more scholarship applications!
    what exactly is a military scholarship? do you know the link for it?

    Thank you again!

    I don't have a link for it, but I know that each area has scholarships for nurses. Army, Navy, Reserves, national Guard. There is even a medical branch for the Army and Navy.

    Really need to research it, as I understand you get special pay for specialty which would amount to 20K per year for a couple of years.

    HRSA has an option where they have loan repayment. They also have the item where they just pay for your tuition, books, monthly living expenses in return for so many years work.

    As part of financial aid, the government gives out loans to students. Part of this amount for nurses can be paid off if you work for a particular type of organization.

    The military has it also set up where they pay of a certain amount of loan amount also. repayment for nurse/mkwid/sRfvxpufu|dc/pcrid/27332897714/pmt/b

    You're welcome. I applied for mine at my financial aid office, and I was lucky to get one almost every semester. You just never know.
