I am trying to find out what options I have for school loans and living expenses while in the program. Can anyone tell me what the best options are to secure a school loan and a supplementary loan for living expenses. My wife is a nurse too but I don't think we can live off of her salary without some help with loans. I know that some schools offer money upfront for a few years commitment but I didn't know if this is my best option or just my only option?? Any advice you all offer is greatly appreciated.
