Some good news(it seems so rare these days)

  1. Financial Aid had a list of places to seek tuition assistance and such on our school website so I called and went to talk to a place called WAEDA(Western Arkansas Employment Development Agency) and they have a program for people who have been accepted into the nursing program and make less than 28,000 a year where they will pay books, tuition, uniforms, and $4.00 a day for travel expenses. I filled out all the paperwork and got accepted! I am so excited! As long as I maintain a C average and stay in the program it's paid for.....Just wanted to shout it from the rooftops!
