I moved your post from an off-topic thread to its own thread in the Massachusetts forum for a better response.
Good luck with your plans for a nursing career and we hope you enjoy the site.

Congrats on graduating!!
A few hospitals will pay your nursing loans if you sign on a for a certain amount of time with them (IE: Lahey clinic does this). You also get a "discount" on any Perkins Loans you get once you can show proof of having a nursing job (its like a couple hundred off or something and then the next year you get even more off and so on..) There are a lot of scholarships for nursing too.. But, on the other hand, it is college, and pretty much everyone ends up w/ school loans in the end! But, financial aid counselors @ colleges are usually really great in helping you budget and figure out the payment situation.
