I went down to ITT tech yesterday and talked with them about there nursing program, after hearing so many wonderful things about it from my former co-workers and other people. I have no job, a car payment, and I live at home. I am looking for employment as a CNA or just minimum wage jobs but I seem to be getting no where on the other hand its only been close to a month since I got terminated. I am still going to look after I get settled in to the routine of school.
But theres just one thing Im so nervouse about right now I am planning on taking out student loans to pay the whole tuition and my car payment. Im glad that ITT has helped me more than anyother school I have looked in to and I feel confident in my decision and that Im going to get a good education and be able to start my life after I pass the bords.
BUT Im so afraid that after I graduate in 2- 2.5 years that I wont be able to get a job and that I wont be able to pay the loans back and I cant file for bankruptcy on an education(says the US government). I keep telling myself that hopfully in the near future I get a job as an aide and I can atleast have my foot in the foor for when I am officially an RN or atleast have the money saved up from working as an aide to pay the minimum on the principal for a while until I get a job that pays decent. I myself think that 53000 is to much for a nursing degree but I think it will be worth my while.
I tell myself 53000 in debt and making 35000-60000 a year is ok and I should have that debt paid off in a few years with my RN. but I am so afraid of debt and not being able to pay it I also decided to when it comes to the loan money dont spend it if you dont have to and then save what I can and use it to pay the loan off if I dont get a job after I graduate. but I got to do what I got to do I guess If I ever plan on moving out of my mom and dads and having a life. All I need to do now is score 75% on my HESI and go get signed up for the financial aide and register for my classes and Im set. Im just so nervouse about the money and getting through it all.
