My strong suggestion is get a part-time job. That's what I did, what my husband did and what all our friends did as well. We didn't have mommys and daddys who gave us cars and they couldn't afford to pay for our post secondary education either. So we walked, we rode the bus and we worked part time, while we went to college and university. My bottom like is there's no way I will ever respond to anyone begging for money on this forum. If you have the time to blog then you have the time to get a part time job.
I'm sorry for the rough circumstances with your mom, and congratulations for getting into nursing school, but I'm with TimeThief on this one. I worked through high school to buy a car - my mom couldn't afford to buy me a car or pay for insurance or gas, so I did it myself. I also worked 30-35 hours a week throughout college to pay for all my bills (nights and weekends). Yeah, it's rough, but it's definitely possible. I'm not trying to pat myself on the back, I just want to encourage you so you know that it's definitely possible. You can also look into getting grants, scholarships, and loans. And remember there's always time for a social life after college. ;)
Since nursing is an "in demand" profession, there are all sorts of extra loans and grants available to complete any reputable program, so long as you sign promises to do things like work initially where the shortages of nurses are great. This is how health care professionals gain valuable experience, by working with more challenging patient populations There's no reason to be asking anyone outside of the Financial Aid representatives at your school.
