I want to be a nurse but my parents are totally against the idea. I told them that i was going to pay for it all myself but i need them to fill out a FAFSA form but they don't want to because they don't want me to be a nurse. So i decided to go to school and just try to get a loan from them but they can't help because i am dependent under my parents and need to have a FAFSA form filled out.
Now i don't know what to do with my life. I still got into nursing school but have no way for paying for it. I get yelled at every day about how nursing sucks and how my life is going to suck because i am a nurse. Oh yea and by the way my kids are going to hate me, i'm going to go to hell, never get married, get no respect from anyone.
Thats basically what i have to listen to every day for the past 6 months and probably more months to go.
The only thing that i got going for me is that i got into school. Sad part is that its a pivate school that cost a little less than $20,000 a year including books and transportation and all that stuff.
Well anyway i'm still on a scheduel, and i gotta sneak through my parents files and try to find their 1040 Tax form and fill out their info. The sad part about it is that my parents made some good investments this year and made way too much for me to probably get a dime from the government and no way anyone is going to give a person with no credit history any personal loans.
Well if anyone has any bright ideas i would like to know because FAFSA isn't going to help even if i do fill it out.

That is true on the tax information. As far as getting help we have little money, four kids in college and could get no help as far as pell grants and such. Could you get a job and get out on your own? Don't let someone control what you want to do? You could get into a facility work as a CNA and they would pay for your school. My son took an STNA class, got hired by a hospital. He has to work there a year then they will pay for his nursing school. Find a way around it.
Being sneaky, you could always say your changing your major to get their tax information. Once you have it change your major.
Sounds awful but as a parent I would never try to tell my children what they will do with their life, it is their choice.
