I am a nursing student in desperate need of some help. I recently received an email informing me that I no longer qualify for the Pell Grant because of a new law. In moments I saw my career going down the drain. I was forced to move 1,700 miles to attend college, away from my home, family, friends, and job to pursue my goal to be a nurse. I was working in Assisted Living with residents who had Alzheimer's. Working with them inspired me to pursue nursing and brought out my passion to help people. I fell in love with helping others and I believe in giving quality care, not just doing the bare minimum. With only a year and a half away from graduating with my BSN, it's getting very discouraging to be so close and possibly have to drop out because of money issues. I just want to finish school. I have been very responsible with my academics. I currently have a 3.6 GPA, and do not believe I am a victim to this situation. I can finish and will have no problem continuing my responsibilities. I am just in need of a little bit of help.
My parents have struggled to give me the best education and opportunities possible. I have approached my family and some close friends, but the amount I need is too much for them to handle, especially since I've been able to provide everything for myself for years up until now.
The amount I am asking for is for 2 semesters. It is tuition only. I can provide my own room and board. This amount does not include books. I am only asking for the portion I am not able to come up with myself just to be able to stay in school.
If you have read all of this, thank you for your thoughts and prayers. A contribution of $5 from anyone would be that much more help for me. If you have donated, thank you. If you are unable to donate, please share this with someone. If you could do both, thank you again. I am not asking for a hand me down but just for a little bit of help. Thank you for your time and consideration.
