Anyone live off student loans while in nursing school?
I am a single mom and currently working full-time in a cubicle job I hate, and I am completing my pre-req part-time.
It would take me 3 years to finish my RN and I dont know how I would be able to get to clinicals by 4:00.
I am considering a LPN program that would be completed in a year if I went full-time, and then bridging to RN once I begin working. Hopefully tuition asst. would be an option!!
The only problem is how would I pay the bills? Are there good part-time jobs for LPN students in a hospital setting?
I was thinking about student loans to compensate for the lost income during this time, has anyone gone this route?
