Great news! I just found out today that I will be the recipient of two of the scholarships
that my school gives out! They give 7 scholarships each year based on academic standing, clinical success, and overall work/study ethics. Well, I'm receiving one for $1000 and one for $500....so there's $1500 for school next semester (half of what I needed).
Also, I'm taking my Saturday's to pull together anything and everything that I can for a yardsale that I plan to have once the semester ends...and I am looking for a few houses to clean throughout the summer...AND, my husband and son are going to be mowing lawns this summer to give my son (age 13) an opportunity to earn money...they plan to split the earnings in 1/2...and guess who gets my husbands 1/2....ME...for school! Soooo...I think I will now have all of my expenses covered to finish nursing school.
Anyway, I am so totally siked about being selected to receive the scholarships!!! That just blew me away!
Thanks you guys & gals for all the advise!
