Yes, you can do this, you can do this, you can do this you can do this. There was a woman in my class with 7 kids who became a single mom part way through. She graduated. You can get money from state education assistance organizations: they'll give you money, you sign a paper stating that you'll work X amt of time as a RN in the state and you don't have to pay the money back. You're gonna do that anyway, right? Your school can help you find this kind of money. Hospitals and other healthcare facilities have similar deals, such as this link I found:
That's just an example I found when I searched for "virginia nursing education tuition assistance" or something along those lines. I don't know anything about that organization--only, my point is that the money is out there and it's not too too hard to find.
You don't have to be the star student making all A+ grades. You just have to graduate and pass your boards (yeah, that's all, no big deal right?!?!
) and you will be so proud of yourself. Yes you can!
