We want to keep our program open to as many students as possible. We are here to help you navigate financial aid! 

Various forms of financial assistance and scholarships are available, including Stafford Loans, Pell Grants, Workforce Investment Act (WIOA), etc. We have compiled as many resources as possible on the page below. 

It is very important that you fill out your FAFSA early. 

Retain any replies from financial aid sources until you are accepted into the PN program.

After receiving an acceptance letter, the applicant must make an appointment with the Financial Aid Counselor.


Check with your local civic organizations for scholarships. We have also provided a list of possible resources below:

  • Rotary Club
  • Lions Club
  • Veterans Association®
  • Community Based Organizations
  • Dr. Offices
  • Local Hospitals
  • Nursing Homes
  • Church
