  • quit your job and go back to school. start at your local community college, your entire tuition plus books will probably be paid for by financial aid, and then youll get the remaining financial aid at the end of the semester (for me, its $2,000). plus, you can take out small student loans in you need help with money for now.

  • Mine is Big on March of Dimes ( we are a health care network). My husband works for a big, well known US Co- they support so many organizations: City of Hope, Children's Network, MD, St Jude's to name a few.

  • you could start by taking as many online courses as possible, that might make it easier with working and kids. there may be money available for nursing students, i know there is a great need for nurses, and soon to be greater need! look into your community college like purpl said.
