Well I will be starting school in May -now is the hard part, how to pay for it? Anyone to offer any advice? I have budgeted that I will need around $150,000. Does anyone know of any hospitals that will provide stipends for agreement to work or promise loans?

Congratz on getting accepted!
Many anesthesia groups and hospital systems will give you loan forgiveness. I have not heard of anything better than about 30K for a 2 yr committment tho. (maybe someone else has?)
In anycase, the only way to find out is to call the anesthesia grps local to you as well as the hospitals recruiters to find out!
Otherwise, stafford loans and gradplus welcomes you :P

Thanks I appreciate all the help!! I am so excited about going but also scared about all the money it takes to go. If I borrow about 150,000 does anyone know about what type of loan payment I will have and is it more than possible on the salary?

Does anyone know of any hospitals or groups with loan forgiveness in WV, OH, PA, TN, or NC? If so which ones? Also, does anyone know if there is anyway at all you can work while going to school or is it just too hard to do?

a 150K loan is possible to manage as a CRNA.
As for working during school, It isnt possible or optimal, however, most people i know do it and have no difficulty with it. Dont expect to keep a regular schedule of 2 days a week tho, it could only be random and the school intensity and schedule can change from week to week.
So essentially, you cant count on the income but it may help to keep your loans lower.

Get this, people, you will love it: I am applying for an AARP 'Loan to Learn' loan. Isn't that just hysterical???!!!
From the little I know about it, it isn't ideal, as you can only defer principal payments. But, what the hey, I'm going to send in an app. You don't have to accept a loan till it's offered to you.....
