Cost of education

The college I picked was Metropolitan State University and the cost per year is $7,804, a 4 year tuition would be $31,216. I think that I would need to apply for loans, financial aid, and/or scholarships because it could help me afford things if I have trouble paying for them. I also think that I need to have part­-time job because it could help me afford things like clothes,food,etc... I think that I might want to do this career in the future because I didn't really know what kind of nurse I wanted to be but I want to be some kind of nurse or doctor, I read more about it and I got interested in it.
