I was wondering if anyone could advise me on what you have done regarding taking out loans for living expenses (rent/food/gas etc)? 

I will be starting school soon (accelerated 2-year program) and have received Scholarships that will cover most of my tuition, however I will still have additional living expenses and several thousand to cover for remaining school fees. I am not sure what the best loan options would be for this, and how easy it is to apply loans/scholarships towards living expenses. I currently have great credit.

I anticipate needing to take out around $20-30k total for the 2 years. 

I do not anticipate being able to work during my program, aside from a few off-shifts during semester breaks. I would rather have some debt and be able to focus 100% on my clinicals and studies during the program at this time. 

Any advice and feedback from your experiences is greatly appreciated!

Talk to your school's financial aid office.  Loans for school are loans for school -- whether you spend the money on books or groceries.   Your school's financial aid office should have information about the various types of loans available to you.   Start there.
