Hi, I already have a bachelor's degree and have been accepted into nursing school. I can not believe that the pell grant is not offered to anyone who gets accepted into a nursing program, especially with the shortage. Teachers certification is acceptable as far as receiving the pell grant after receiving a bachelors, but nursing is not? I just looked up pell grant information and it states that the grant is also available for people who have bachelors and want to go into a licensing program. Is nursing not a licensing program? It is absurd that the pell grant is not offered to anyone (owners of bachelors or higher degrees) going into nursing.
