I had plans for nursing school all my life and my father chose to have a mid life crisis this year, right as I graduated from high school. He's gone and left my family with nothing. We now live in a small camper in an RV park in Nashville. I have absolutly no help for college and the loan programs are no help because they force me to use my father's income, even though he has abandoned us. I am so desperate for help, and can't possibly imagine putting anymore stress on my mother by asking her to help me find a way to become a nurse. She is barely hanging on to any sanity she has left. Are there hospitals that will educate me, in return for me working for them after the program is finished? It is the only way I can think of to be a nurse. I have no resources to money or help. I would really appreciate any advice I can get. I graduated high school with a 3.6 GPA. I only mention that because I feel like it is important to note that I take my education seriously. Thanks so much for your time!
