I just wanted to know if anyone had more info about how they paid for nursing school. Both me and my husband are in school, we have 3 kids, and we are basically living off of student loans and I'm afraid of the amount of debt we are gonna be in when we graduate. I heard there are some hospitals that will pay off your debt if you sign a contract with them to work in that hospital for X amount of years upon graduation. Does anyone know more about this? Which hospitals are doing this or how to get started with the process? I'm planning on applying to the NSC nursing program for the summer start.

Can one of you stop school and work while the other finishes in order to generate income and slow the rate of loans you are taking out down? Three kids and ZERO jobs seems kind of reckless.

He actually receives disability. And we get more than enough in financial aid to pay for school now.

I have been working and doing school at the same time up until now. I wanted you do really well in AP2 and I couldn't if I was working. This is the first semester we got loans, just to cover the portion we are short. I heard nursing school is really expensive and im going to start soon, so I wanted to see if there were any other options.
