    Hi Barb,
    I do not know of a place in southern Indiana, but I do know of a place in Louisville if you're interested. My grandmother was there for many years and all of the staff was long-term and seemed really happy. Just PM me if you'd like the name.

    sorry you are having trouble but it happens all the time. i went throught alot to get a loan for lpn. i went to ivy tech in sellersburg and was a waiting list and you had to have the highest grades :angryfire but :angryfire (fact) if you were on welfare (no income) and she didn't even score high to be put on waiting list, you were in the program! this is true i know the girl, and she dropped out after 2 months, pregnant with #3 baby. ivy tech still gets their money from our goverment (our tax money) even though she didn't finish or is in school now. i know this didn't help you with your problem but you up against the money game of goverment.
    i do hope you find help, barb

    does anyone know why the state of indiana does not allow people to get a nurse scholarship from the state funds if they already have a bs in another area? i even wrote an appeal letter - but they only allow people who do not have degrees. i know someone who has as many credit hours as me - got it because they did not accept a bs. i got the bs and can't get it. they use the fafsa and your social security number and know how much education you have. seems to me that with the 2 year work requirement they could allow someone to get this scholarship who has a degree in another area. i already can't get pell or federal or state loans. i keep researching scholarships but they will say current high school senior or something like that. i don't own a home so can't borrow on that. too old for military. i am applying for a lot of charge cards so i can borrow on them if necessary to pay for school - if i am lucky enough to get chosen this time around. i actually think the schools prefer admitting students who have all the scholarships and grants - since they definitly have the money. then many of them get the money and drop out without finishing.

    Hi,
    Does anyone know of a good LTC (nursing home) facility to work in New Albany,Jeffersonville,Clarksville areas ?? I want to work where people pull togerher and work for the clients, each staff member tries to get along with each other. The DON works with the nurses not against them so that employees will want to stay at facility. I want fair pay but I want a good place to work for first then fair pay. I am not looking for a job to see who will pay the most because that doesn't last long if you don't like the place.
    Thanks for any information,
    Barb
