Scholarships and Financial Aid
Gift or Loan Money: Dedicated study and work habits can help you achieve a career goal as a registered nurse (RN). When seeking scholarships and financial aid, understand that it takes time and work. Scholarships and grants fall under Gift-Aid offers. For long-term loans and work-study programs expect Self-Aid--you will pay loans or work without earning payment.
Keep in Mind this Adage: "Nothing is Free!" It takes work–lots of investigative searches and filing out applications–to identify gift aid and self-aid. However, the potential of success is worth it: sometimes it is the gift of a scholarship or a grant and at other times you may need to access low-interest loans or accept work-study programs. Gift or loan money, as well as your own good study and work habits, make it possible to achieve your career goal as a registered nurse.
