You did not state whether your are about to start NS or about to graduate. In this profession and there are expenses...licensing renewals, continuing educationn, malpractice, professional magazines; some equipment (if you start NS, you may be required to buy a bag containing many things, which may include BP cuff, steth., pen light, sissors, etc.). Nice thing about profressional expenses is they will be tax deductible. You can cut costs if you price compare, order on line, etc. When I was a poor new nurse, I bought my scrubs at the local thrift store. They had losts of life left in them, and I saved money.
There are expenses, but nursing is a profession--it is not just a job.
