    Thanks for all of ya'lls help. I was so depressed all weekend. We actually have gone thru the "cannels" at the Financial Aid office. They denied my appeal. Seems since Gary and I are already nurses (LPN's) they think we make enough money to help ourselves. As far as the hospital where I work. The will do some type of tution reimbursment. Only on the tution, not fees, books...and all that nursey stuff...yah know.......and of course it's based on grades..........so.........I'm looking into that.....not sure if I want to commit myself to them or not. I've already worked there 12 1/2 years.....think when I actually get my RN it will be time for a change.
    I did do the "gulp" last thing I wanted to do..........ask dad........OMG.........I'm almost 40 and I hated to ask him. But, he's willing to help me. THANK GOD! I had to swallow my pride on that one.
    Gary and I are still at odds........since his solution was that I drop until next year.........I don't think so.....I really don't think I would even want to start over again. It was hard enough to get back into the routine this time.
    I do appreciate all ya'lls input...will check out the links.........
    Thanks again........This old LPN will make it to RN yet!!!:kiss
