    Props to everyone who bikes to school! I can't imagine biking to school with my backpack, It's huge and heavy, and almost never the only bag I have to carry. I seriously considered the long bike ride to school until my first day of classes, when I realized it was better for my back to not even try.

    Hello all. You can take the bus--and read. Nursing does require a lot of studying to get through the program. However, if clinicals are involved at 6 am you will need a car to move around. So you may want to make sure you are prepared because some areas don't have bus service when you need it where you need it.

    My student loans are mostly for gas and groceries. $125 a week in gas to go my 60+miles day. I manage to feed our fam of 4 w 100 per week including diapers. I'd take pub trnsprt but live in a rural mountain area and that's not an option. I photocopy, use library, and used/previos version books. Transport costs more than my tuition and books!
