You will be just fine in your studies as you are asking the right questions. I was fortunate as I worked for a university hospital system that paid most of my initial training for BSN, MSN. National Health Services Corp paid for the rest! (Post-Masters, DNP) , so no loans for me. Depending on where you want to work, you may want to consider the Corp. The money is tax free and it can pay your debt down fast. 4 years 120,000. I had a great experience, moved around the country and seen some cool places...not the horror stories you might of heard.
- Jan 17 by myelinThank you so much for the support and advice, Miss PsychNP! I know I'm fairly early in my studies to be thinking this far ahead, but I can't help it. It sounds like I should relax, because there seem to be plenty of jobs that pay well and many options for loan repayment. Plus, after having a positive conversation with some classmates ahead of me in the MSN program (there is, apparently, work for per diem/part-time RNs in the bay area, afterall), I'm not as concerned about having absolutely gigantic loans to pay back (they will hopefully just be sort of gigantic, haha!) It sounds like I will be able to work part-time as a RN during the PMHNP portion of my program.

You will definitely be able to work.
