Default Paying for Nursing School

"Many people who are considering nursing, and especially older people who are considering switching to a nursing career from their present job, are concerned about the costs of obtaining a nursing degree. Some think they can’t afford to go to nursing school. But almost always, if you’ve got the aptitude and desire and skills to become a nurse, there’s a way for you to pay for your nursing education. These days there are more and more sources of financial aid for nursing students, driven in part by the growing realization across the country of just how huge the ramifications of the ever worsening nurse shortage will be. Cities, states, businesses, colleges, and other organizations are starting to see that one of their biggest priorities for the short and long term future is to see to it that as many people as possible enter the nursing profession, or there will be dire consequences. This means that the bad news-the worsening nursing shortage-is very good news for anyone who needs help paying for their nursing education. So don’t despair. There’s financial help available, and there’s more financial aid being directed toward nursing education every year". Check it out by clicking on this link:

Just be aware on the Loan Forgiveness that even though the loan is forgiven, it is still reportable as income on your income taxes.

It bit me in the butt last year. Fortunately, I had money put back to pay it off.
