So I was accepted to a nursing program, and I have a previous degree. Unfortunately our school does not accept Federal Direct Loans, which is the only student aid I qualify for. I was looking into the nursing core scholarship and I wanted to know anyone's experience with it, and how the job search was post graduation. I do see the application has been open a while and is due pretty soon, any tips/tricks on the application process. How hard did you find qualifying for this grant?
I see that I qualify with the need based EFC of 5328, mine is 4130.
Does anyone know specifically the nursing shortage facilities in the Southern Pines/Fayetteville region of North Carolina?
Also, if you have to move are you able to switch to another Shortage approved area for work or do you have to complete your 2 years in the first facility? (military)
Any/All tips appreciated!
