Men and women who are in the ROTC or who are planning to enter the ROTC program at college, can have an opportunity to receive a scholarship to help pay for a nursing degree. Individuals can receive help with tuition and even a stipend for many living expenses. This is a program of merit and that is also based on a student academic performance and other related factors. Students should talk to their ROTC program leader to learn more about how to apply for a scholarship to help achieve their nursing career goals.
Of course, prospective LPNs can also apply to receive scholarships from organizations and from private sponsors in addition to college foundation scholarships. Every student should take the time to apply for financial aid when attending financial aid eligible programs. Employees can look for employees sponsored programs. There are sometimes even CNA-LPN programs where an employer will pay for someone to move on in their career as long as they then work for that employer. There are always ways to find the money needed to pay for LPN training. In fact, it is actually possible to receive free LPN training when opting for as many financing options as possible.
