I am ready to apply to several accelerated nursing programs
in Maryland which are from 13.5 months to 18 months in length. What is the best way for me to pay for living expenses (mortgage,etc.) while I'm going to school full-time. Will a school loan cover that amount (about $50,000) or do I take out a HELOC? I am a single person so I don't have another income to rely on.

I had the option to go to an accelerated nursing program, I choose not to because I have to pay my mortgage, eat and pay bills. Rightnow, I will be starting a part time evening program, which will last 3 years. The good thing about that, I will continue to make a good income while I focus in school and not have to worry about when the next meal is going to come.
According to Maslow Theory, the second greatest needs is Safety after physiological, meaning you need a roof over your head before going to school.
*Ask family members if they can support you for at least 2 years.
*Work two jobs now, and save money if can
*Move from a two bedrooms to one
Good Luck to you
