Financial Aid Awards

Literally millions of students that would have qualified for some financial aid didn't even apply for it, or were late in submitting required forms. The official FAFSA website is fafsa.ed.gov. Be aware of the differences in tuition for in-state versus out-of-state residents, and the documentation required that may enable reclassification as an in-state student after completion of the freshman year.

Grants, Scholarships, and Loans

A Federal Pell Grant, unlike student loans, does not have to be repaid. Pell Grants are awarded only to undergraduate students who have never earned a bachelors or professional degree. The grant distribution will depend on demonstrated financial need, according to the FAFSA application, the cost of attendance, your status as a full-time or part-time student, and your plans to attend school for a full academic year or less. You may not receive Federal Pell Grant funds from any more than one educational institution at a time.

Students who receive Federal Pell Grants and have extreme financial need will receive FSEOG grants first. The FSEOG grant program is administered directly by participating schools, so check with your financial aid office to find out if your school offers the FSEOG. You can receive anywhere between $100 and $4,000 a year, depending on when you apply, and the amount of other financial aid you get. This system works differently from the Federal Pell Grant Program, which provides grant funding to each eligible student.

The Scholarships.com website rates the relevancy of each scholarship, but FastWeb.com offers a larger scholarship database. Borrowers of privately subsidized student loans may face the same restrictions to bankruptcy discharge as in the case of government based loans. Student loans typically have variable interest rates while federal student loans have fixed rates, and borrowers should be aware that some private loans require substantial up-front origination fees as well. Finally, student credit cards may seem like a good short-term solution to financial need, but the interest rates are high, and credit cards often carry an annual fee. If you do end up using credit cards to meet some expenses, pay off the outstanding balance in full every month.

Nursing & Medical Job Listings

Earning a CNA degree (Certified Nursing Assistant) is the first step towards becoming a fully-qualified nurse. Most CNA programs can be completed within a few months, allowing you to join the workforce quickly. The next step in a nursing career is to become a LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) or LVN ( Licensed Vocational Nurse). These are year-long programs, in which you'll work under an RN distributing meds, treating wounds, and providing basic patient care.

In order to become an RN (Registered Nurse), a bachelors degree in nursing is recommended. RN's command a greater salary, and are responsible for an enlarged scope of practice over LPNs and CNAs. Students will receive classroom instruction and clinical training in a hospital setting. A 4-year BSN program allows students to further specialize in the areas of pediatrics, geriatrics and mental health. After completing your nursing education, you must be licensed by the state in which you'll be practicing, given that state boards of nursing each have specific certification requirements.
