this is my first thread, and my question is for all the current nurses, How did/do you handle/manage you student loan debt after nursing school
/becoming a nurse?
I am currently a pre-nursing student, my goal is to become a registered nurse. So far this goal seems soooo far to reach right now, I have been in college 3yrs and yes, I am STILL a pre-nursing student. I have not been financially able to afford college, my mother passed when I was just a baby, and my father has been the only provider for my older brother and I. Taking out a loan was something I said I would never do, but in the end I had no choice, I work, but it still doesn't add up. I just wanted some advice from those who are going through it now as working nurses and is it as big a burden as I think it is? This is my main concern, I think about it all the time, " I'M Gonna graduate in debt, I'M Gonna graduate in debt" it drives me crazy. Everyone tells me don't worry about that right now, or you're not gonna be in debt. Can anyone please offer any advice?
