    check with school they have trained personnel that can help you there are loans and scholarships that are not dependent on financial need
    go on line and search out different avenues..there are opportunities out there some times you have to dig for them

    look into hospitals that are looking to pay for you schooling but in return,you work for them for few years,but be aware, and read contract carefully know what are the terms and conditions

    Check into scholarships offered by the school and by local hospitals. The service league at the hospital where our clinicals were done gave out a handful of scholarships per semester. Even though I did not qualify for aid I got one each semester. It basically paid for all of my books, which was a big help.

    What about a student loan?
