I just learned that I have gotten accepted into the Nursing Program at Goodwin College. I need to deny my acceptance due to financial reasons. Will this affect me negatively when I apply for other nursing programs in the future??

No, it shouldn't affect you. People decline admission to programs all the time for any number of reasons.  If you are unable to attend, simply let the school know in timely fashion.

If it is specific to finances - I would recommend reaching out to their financial aid office before declining to see if they can help you work out something to make school more affordable (grants, scholarships, loan terms, or payment plan), or if your circumstances would qualify you for deferred admission (not all places off this, but it doesn't hurt to ask).

Nope. I got accepted into 2 different programs. I told my second choice that I appreciated the opportunity, but I'm turning down my seat for personal reasons. They really don't care & dont ask questions. They've got a waiting list of students to call after you give up your spot.

There's so many ways to get money for school though, so if thats your issue- i would go to the school and see an advisor. Especially financial aid advisors. Nurses are in such a need right now that there are special grants just for nursing students. Theres WIOA, the finish line grant, etc.

Shouldn't affect you at all, especially because you have no choice, really. If, after exhausting all financial options, you decide that you need to give up the place, all they ask is that you do it in a timely and professional manner so that they can quickly give the spot to an alternate or waitlisted applicant. Think of it like looking for a job--you apply for several get offered a few, but you can only accept one and have to turn down the rest. As long as you're courteous about it, there can be no penalty.
