New Here

  1. Hello everyone! I am brand new to this bulletin board. I'm so excited to find something like this. Once I learn the in's and out's of the bulletin board I'll feel better. I'm starting my clinicals in two weeks and getting very excited about it. I tried once before (about 6 years ago) and it was too tough working full time. So I was finally able to quit my job a couple months ago and I'm really excited about starting. One question I had was, does anyone have any info on ways of getting financial aid, grants, scholorships. Or even if anyone can share their experiences of getting help would be great. Thanks so much & I look forward to meeting alot of nurses - especially those that have just started!!!

    Hello Amy.......Welcome to allnurses!

    I wish you well in your nursing studies, and as aimee said...you can gain a lot of useful information here on this site, and when you are stressed and need to unwind....we welcome you to do so.

    As for gathering information regarding grants and financial aid, I copied down some sites suggested by another user here a while back. Here they are and I hope they prove useful to you. :kiss
