In a previous life (i.e. when i was a student) I managed, like most students, to rack up stupid amounts of debt. Now I'm slightly older and wiser and I'm in a debt management plan to sort out all my said student debts. Because of this I have defaulted a loan and I just wanted to know if anyone out there knows if this will be a bar to me applying to join the RN. Surely my DMP shows that I am taking responsibility for my young and stupid mistakes? Any help would be very much appreciated.
