    That being said, I would question why the school does not allow for government student loans. Do they have a high default rate? Check it out. If that is the case, I'd then go on to question whether they are accredited or not and perhaps look into a different school.
    I thought she was going to a techinical college which is where i am going and they are accredited( even is a bridge for RN school IV certification and all while i am in the LPN program, but they don't allow stafford loans, none of them in louisiana do, Go figure, so i doubt that has any thing to do with being accredited

    Hey guys, I have had an answer to my prayers. Just so you all know I have a wonderful father-in-law to be that is going to help me. I hate for someone to have to help me with that much but I can't imagine having to pass up this oppurtunity with as much as I have gone through all ready......Thanks or all your ideas and all, I really appreciate it. And just keep me in your prayers while the rest of the interviewing process goes on.

    Is your work situation changing to be able to go to school? I mean, instead of working full time, are you cutting down to part time or not working at all? If so, you can talk to the financial aid office about it. They have a special circumstance thing where they can adjust your income to what it will be (not what it was) and you may be able to qualify for a lot more money.

    Also I would look into RN school since colleges have so much more options between grants, scholarships and loans. Or at least other LPN schools that will at least take student loans.

    Good luck!

    I worked full time while getting my ADN, BSN and now MSN. Felt like I had no choice. Have you tried scholarships? Asked your church if they have scholarships?
