Planning and applying for financial aid to support
nursing education should start early. Financial aid for all students
is limited so it is important that the application and necessary
documents are submitted by published deadlines.
Begin by researching local resources such as the Lion's Club, American
Legion, Chamber of Commerce, and women's organizations. Contact
the financial aid office of the school where you plan to attend.
