    Congratulations, you guys. I've been an RN since 1983 (although currently disabled/bedridden due to a bad heart) and my hubby is currently in the U program. We live 4 hrs north of the Twin Cities and have 3 daughters (2 in college) so it has been quite the yr!

    Just wanted to say that yes, you are considered a grad student and can get grad school loans. Also wanted to add that there is an application for financial aid when hubby filled out - and he was granted a scholarship for about $2000 which helps. He later attended a luncheon for recipients of nursing scholarships and there was only 1 other person there from his program. It made us think that they don't have much in terms of non-loan assistance for this program, but we were very grateful for whatever he got!

    It's a tough, demanding academic load, and hubby still has to work on wknds to keep supporting our family, but he is quite happy with the education he is getting in the program and will be VERY thankful when December 2010 comes around! :-)
