I am currently in a situation where I want to go back and finish my rn, I have been accepted into an lpn to adn bridge program, but can’t go back because I cannot afford to pay out of pocket, and I do not qualify for anything through the fafsa, and can’t take out any more student loans. Does anyone have any ideas where I can go to look for any grants or scholarships other than filling out the fafsa?
You might be able to get your employer to pay for it and do tuition assistance. Or a program that requires you to work for them a certain amount of time in exchange for your tuition. Or the army nurse corps. Or a bunch of scholarships. You have lots of options, but you gotta do the research.
You might want to render your services in private institutions or private employers who need medical assistance or medical aide. Apply for a caregiver, perhaps? Given your basic (or thorough) background in nursing, there might be private employers willing to provide you task related to your expertise.
