Financial Aid

While we at NursingsCool do not offer any type of educational scholarships or financial aid (yet), we wanted to give you a few resources as well as a few tips on where you may be able to get help with paying for nursing school.

Government Assistance

You may already know this, but the US government has a few programs that can help pay for school, and some are even specific to nursing.

Check out the list below.

FAFsa

FAFSA or Free Application for Federal Student Aid is probably our number one pick when it comes to getting help with school financially.

 

You do have to qualify, but even if you don't, most scholarships through colleges want this filled out. So might as well check it out and see if it can help.

Here are a few other government options that may be a better fit, if FAFSA doesn't work out.

NURSE Corps

NURSE Corps is a available to those of you that are:

1.  U.S. citizens

2. Willing to work in an eligible critical shortage facility after you graduate

3. Must be accepted or enrolled in an accredited professional nursing degree program before September 30th of the applicable year.

This scholarship helps with tuition, books, uniforms, clinical supplies, and even offers a monthly stipend.

NHHS

NHHS or NAtive Hawaiian Health Scholarship is available for those of you that can:

1.  Must be enrolled in a nursing, midwifery or nurse practitioner program

2. Must be able to prove your Hawaiian ancestry

3. After receiving the scholarship, you must be willing to live and work in Hawaii, in an under-served community for a year, for every year you receive the scholarship. 

This scholarship helps with tuition, school-related costs, as well as a monthly stipend.

Student Loans

Some schools are eligible for students to receive government student loans for those that do not qualify for FAFSA.

After graduation, as a new working nurse, you are expected to begin loan repayment. There are stipulations and many types of loans, so get with the financial advisor of your school to see which option is right for you. Your financial advisor will also be the person who helps get you started in the loan process.

This school-based loan helps with tuition, books, and other school-related supplies.

SDS

Scholarships for Disadvantaged Students

Some schools are eligible for students to receive government student loans for those that do not qualify for FAFSA.

After graduation, as a new working nurse, you are expected to begin loan repayment.
