I stand by what I said with regard to NCLEX pass rates of course this might vary some from state to state but the numbers don't lie.

I've tried for years to pay my loan. They wouldn't accept what I stated I could pay monthly. They insisted I paid $400 a month. That simply is not doable for me. Had they accepted my offer on what I could pay monthly, my loans would be paid off by now. It's not much. It's 9k left. But it's from 15 years ago. Those aholes should have just accepted my offer.

After 7 years of nursing, I have only just now in the last 2 years found a job I can do full time. I have interstial cystitis and tried numerous times to work full-time. With my bladder, that wasn't happening. I can now do it in private duty. Just barely. My point is just that everyone has their story and reasons for debt not being paid off yet.

Maybe if enough people who have struggled, but failed to pay their loans (and who get their licences suspended) form outlaw motorcycle gangs (Sons of Anarchy Style) Florida will rethink their policy. After all if someone is denied a license and legal means of earning an income (and now they are taking passports so you can't even leave the country) what is left is a life of crime isn't it? Like I tell my SO maybe prison isn't so bad more naps, more sex, more time to work out, no bills (that I pay anyway), more time to read.... or maybe we could form giant homeless colonies and roam the land Walking Dead style living on the public beaches.
