Any information would be greatly appreciated. I have found some list of "direct entry" programs but I have researched them and they are not accurate."

If you're thinking about a BSN, you can get federal loans for an undergrad after 180 credit hours. A lot of us hit that wall in my second bachelors. You just have to write an essay about your hardship reason. Of course, federal loans aren't going to touch Vandy's price tag, but my friends were also able to get private loans. They needed co-sponsors, though.
There's federal loans for master's too.
