Does anyone know of good scholarships
or grants for nursing students. Maybe even loans. I have to drive 60 miles each day just to attend the nursing classes in the fall. I am getting a pell and loan. With 3 kids and a house its just too little. We have already been warned by our instructors not to try to work while in the program. I really don't know what choice I have. My local hospital only will pay for tuition if you receive no other finaid. I know about the Dept. of Health and Human Services nursing scholarship
but it seems like a person's chance of receiving it is very slim. They got 5000 applications and only made 92 awards. One would think with a nursing shortage they would try to do more than that. I guess I am just venting about how I am going to pay for nursing school. A stipend would be nice for Gas, daycare, care to be fixed. Its that the only program around like that.
Thanks for any help someone can give
