A grant from the Dept of Education is accessible to nursing students in the state of Florida. I have attended an informational session and I do qualify for such aid. The program pays for tuition, books, 2 uniforms, 1 pair of shoes, a stethoscope, NCLEX fees, KAPLAN NCLEX
review, $25 gas card monthly, child care, etc.
A personal friend of mine just finished nursing school and it was all paid for. There are a few criterias (make less than a certain amount of $ per year, US Citizenship or permanent residency, grades, acceptance letter, et al) There is NO committment to stay in the state or work for any entity whatsover. It is there for the taking. If you are interested let me know. I go tomorrow to officially sign onto the program.

I just went to the below link and did a search for eligible occupations. It appears to me that this program is available only for PNs because after I selected "Nursing," I had to choose which type of nursing assistant. RN was not on the list. I hope I'm wrong about this, I could sure use free money. Somebody tell me if I'm wrong.
Here is the link:

Nevermind! There is also a selection for "Health Diagnosing and Treating Practioners," and RN is listed under there....FYI.
