Well, I have posted several times about my problems...but a quick overview...I have about 80 credit hours from 11 years ago, in which my GPA was not good. I returned to school 1 1/2 years ago taking the prereqs for the nursing program, doing very well now with grades - 3.5's. Well because my GPA is low and hard to bring up with so many credit hours behind me, I am an alternate for the program. But there are a ton of alternates with better GPA's so I really don't stand a chance.
Well, found an ADN program that all my classes would transfer to, there is no waiting list, had all my transcripts sent there, took all the required testing and passed, and found out yesterday I can get ZERO funding thru financial aid. Because my credit hours are over the limit for a two year college.
So basically I am now stuck. I have 3 kids, so paying for classes and childcare out of my pocket is not an option. This is so frustrating. I don't have good enough credit to get a loan at a private institution, so I don't know what else to do now...except wait for some miracle to happen.
Thanks for letting me vent. I only have 3 weeks of classes left and I have completely lost all motivation because I am so sad and frustrated. I don't even want to go to classes anymore...

The community college has a payment plan...I think you make 3-4 payments over the semester. Might be worth checking into.
Don't give up.
Are there any other 4 year colleges that you would be interested in attending?? UMKC has a BSN program....Jewell does but is too expensive IMO. If attending a 4-year would be the only option in receiving more financial aide, why not look into others in the area?
Why not pursue a different bachelor's degree at your present school? You can then go through the accelerated bachelor's to RN program that is offered through Research. The RN program takes a year to complete. I've run into many students that are in that program. http://www.researchcollege.edu/progr...ated/index.htm
I'm sure you have more options than you think. Check around. I mean, it would be a shame to owe 14,000 bucks and not have anything to show for it.
