hi,looks like i have a spot in a lpn programm starting in october. i am soooo excited and really want to do this. but the programm costs about 16.000$. i've see on here that there's others out there who paid even more than that, but how do you afford it? as far as i know i am eligible for grant and loans but does that usually cover all of it? i just don't know how well i would do if i had to work full time plus going to school at the same time and my two kids. but i guess if i have then i have to. any suggestions would be appreciated. thanks.

hi, thanks for the reply. i know it's a lot of money, and the only reason why i am thinking of doing it is because they have a spot for me now and no 2 or 3 years waiting like a lot of other places. and i am so excited that i don't want to wait no more. my original plan was , that as soon as i make it into school, i wouldn't work and just concentrate on school, but i have no clue how much financial aid i can get. they told me i should be fine so i am guessing it'll cover the tuition, otherwise i don't see how other people do it.
but thanks for the insides on school and the studying, i kind of expected that much studytime if not more lol. and i know it'll will be hell of a year but i don't care as long as i get the chance to do it. but i am sure everybody gets to see me whining on here sooner or later about it being rough lol. but hey, i guess i asked for it. how much was your tuition? and anybody out there that paid as much as 16.000$????
I am in the same situation and can totally understand you. Not everyone has the good fortune to pick and choose because of the area they live in and endless other factors. Also, most shcools require you to do all your pre-reqs at their school to even be considered and get points in your nursing application, (again in my area it is). God bless all of you who can pick and chose or take pre-reqs in different schools and still get accepted.
I had no other choice but to pay more than twice the cost for nursing school versus the cc, because I can't wait those years. I am taking out all student loans and deal with them later. Best wishes to you.
