    Experience with student loans = DON'T.



    Run, far, far, far away. We have over $50K of student loan debt staring at

    us and it hurts. It is like a heavy weight hanging over life and it won't

    go away. It is not worth it - pay cash.

    From experience you will not get anything that quick. Go to the school web

    site click on the financial aid get it filled out asap.

    I don&#39;t know how to get them quickly because mine took awhile, but congratulations on getting into nursing school. I have heard that it is quite an accomplishment. I went to college to become a teacher and I don&#39;t regret one day. I love my job.

    Many people do not have the option to pay cash for school and as long

    as you get your loan thru a reputable bank/lender you will be fine.

    Pay attention to the repayment terms but in my experience they are more

    than fair. Student loans, though they will show on your credit report,

    will not negatively effect your credit rating if they are in

    deferrment. You normally do not have to pay anything until 6 months

    after you graduate and even then you can stretch out repayment over a

    very lenghthy amount of time if necessary.

    If you can get a Stafford Loan (thru federal aid) then your interest

    rate will be determined and regulated by the government and some

    stafford loans I think will even cover the interest (depending on your

    ioncome).





    **Also check with your church. Many denominations have scholarships

    and loans through the national headquarters. I received a large

    scholarship and a loan through the Presbyterian Church (USA).

    My experience with student loans: go with grants and scholarships

    as much as you can, then use loans for whatever else. I went to the

    school guidance councilor and received lots of information of free

    financial aid, and did receive several things from the

    government. My sister and her daughter filled out a lot of

    scholarship forms, especially the ones done by businesses. My niece

    didn't have to pay anything for her college, or room and board there.



    The student loans are a low interest loan, or they were when I got

    mine. If you don't expect the loan to pay for everything, you won't

    owe enough to be a second mortgage when you get your degree.

    True...go for financial aid first....but once you get to the upper degrees..MDs,

    PharmD etc you cannot get financial aid/grants And when you are an intern there

    is no way to work ALSO and go to school so student loans are the only way to

    accomplish your goals unless your parents are rich. My best friend was a single

    parent and attended college for 8 years to achieve her PharmD. Her income is

    nice now but she had 1200 a month student loan payemnts because her income she

    doesnt get the lower interest rates. Thankfully she gets a loan forgiveness by

    working at a Low income at need Critical access Hospital and gets the HUGE

    re-payment of $25,000 a year for 4 years.

    Please don't be offended at my asking this, but is this a "real" nursing

    school or one of those private trade schools that are SO expensive & you end

    up with no college credits. It seems odd to me that she just found out she

    was accepted 3 weeks before classes start. I've had friends/co-workers

    with kids who went to a "nursing school" only to realize that it was

    actually a medical assistants school. When they graduated they were in

    debt, had no college credit, and made just slightly more than minimum wage.

    Please don't give Sallie Mae a room in your house. Trust me from "been

    there" that you will not be happy with this choice.....

    Hello sir,


    I read your question. I think your a good husband to ask such a question. I wold encourage anyone to advance themselve. There are many programs for repayment of loans for nurses she should take the loan and apply for grants. Programs maybe in your state. Ask your local hospital and colleges.


    The goverment has loan forgiveness after she works in the hosiptal for 2 years in the city.





    God Bless!

    I have known peolpe to be accepted last minute into the nursing program. There is a huge waiting list and if somebody gets accepted and then doesnt follow through they will fill it with their wait list if all pre-reqs are met....but they would already be taking their pre-reqs and already know about financial aid.

    My hubby is in Nurs school.What we did was prepay using the credit card,he just finished Nurs 3,was 650 plus books,which he borrowed some from friiends.We then applied for financial aid and got a check in mail for 950 so it covered tuition and some books.He will start Nurs 4 and it will run fall thru Dec and we will do the same.He is an LPN so he got credited for Nurs 1 and 2 and took a test and got into Nurs 3,he will do Nurs 4 in fall and Nurs 5 in sping and sit for boards after he finishes Nurs 5.He took all his prerequisites 1or 2 at a time cause we had to pay all along,so its taken a while but will be worth it.He also works fulltime so its been hard working around his school and work schedule.
