Hi guys! I just passed the TEAS and am set to start the nursing program at Keiser next January, I chose January so I could save up money until that point..I will be getting married in August, and will (luckily) be able to stay at my full time job until January when I will have to quit to start the core nursing curriculum. This will be a second degree for me, I am currently working as a teacher, and paying back my student loans from my first go around with college. My fiance is a firefighter and still paying back his school loans from his education as well.
My fiance is beginning to get worried about how we will afford bills once I have to quit my teaching job. I've searched the forums and read what I could find, but thought it never hurts to ask for more help. How would you or have you funded your nursing school education while having to pay rent and other living expenses? Is there a good website to use for scholarships? I know I cannot get any grant money since I already have my bachelors, which I found out yesterday-ouch!! I really do not want to take out thousands more in school loans as I am currently shouldering about $37k from my bachelors.
