Hey,

So anyone else starting school at hgtc in Aug? Also, does anyone know of any single parent/ nursing grants? I don't want to full do student loans.

I am starting from scratch which isn't bad. Will this make becoming a nurse 3 years? I plan to goto WGU for my BSN, while working full-time as a PCT. It's going to be hard but it will work I believe.

Well any help you all can give. :)

I am a HGTC alumni/graduate. My overall experience their was good. I am a single parent and I made it, but unfortunately I had to take out loans and work part time just to live. One resource that I had was the WIA program, it's through the employment office. They pay for your gas mileage to and from school books, and some tuition if needed. HGTC has plenty of scholarships to apply for, but they do have one in particular for single parents call the Gayle Harrison McGinnis Memoral Scholarship, you have to have at least a 2.5 GPA. The form is available online and at the financial aid office. Good luck in your nursing journey.

Question:

What was your score to get into the program? Did you use your GPA or TEAS score? Do you mind sharing what it was? I am just trying to weight my chances of getting accepted. I applied in August 2015 and was not accepted. I will reapply again in March 2016.

Thanks,

Victoria
