What is that average amount of student loans people have?

I am a sophomore in college and currently I will have to pay back 9, 125 dollars. Is that more than what most people pay back. I am a nursing student and I heard that when I start clinicals that the school would pay my loans off or something. Is this true.

    You are about average for a Nursing degree. Some people (doctors, dentists, lawyers, especially) finish school over 200K in debt. Count yourself lucky! Not many companies will assist with loan repayment, especially not in the healthcare industry, so I wouldn’t bet on it. Call the HR dept. of the local hospital and ask them. They will be happy to tell you what they do.
