But by the time my application and everything goes threw all the important people. I will be done with my pre reqs at the community college and will be transfering to the university. So would it be beneifitial to me to allow them to pay for the rest of my schooling(just the nursing classes) and sign the three year contract? Or for me to continue to pay for them like i have been that way I can work where I want when im done?

Do you like your current workplace?  Would you want to work there as a nurse, or are you more like, "GET ME OUTTA HERE!!" and seeing school as reprieve?  Would you be able to afford school easily on your own, or would you be taking out loans and/or struggling?  3 years isn't a terribly long contract, IMO, but it also depends on your workplace.  If you like it there well enough, it might be good to take them up on it.  Plus, once you have some experience under your belt, you'll be more marketable to other workplaces.

Being here for 3 years seems fine. But being here for the three years PLUS the 4 years im in school is going to be a very long time. I mean i love my job but thats a long commitment.

What is your job market like?

Here in SoCal its hard for new grads. So a guarantee for a job would be amazing. You could then have experience and apply elsewhere more easily.
