It is wonderful that you are trying to go back to school. Higher education has become the key to success in today's world. The only people who are seeing their incomes grow are those with higher education. And the data on national averages show that the higher the education you receive the higher your income will be. Investing in yourself is the best investment you can ever make, even if you have to take out a loan. It's like real estate. People don't wait until they have all the money to purchase a home. They get a mortgage and there are few people who I ever ran into who regret their investment in their home. And your life is more important than any house, so invest in yourself before you invest in anything else.
Another good reason to do what you are doing is that jobs in health care are booming in the US and it is likely to be that way for a long time to come. We can't outsource personal health care services like we do now with everything thing from call centers and computer software to tax return preparation.
Now let's see how we can get you the money you need in grants, scholarships or even loans to get you where you want to be in the world.
Like everything in the world of information, there is no one single source of information showing money for Native Americans. The qualifications for these grants will vary depending on the funding source. Scholarships from the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs require you to be enrolled as a member of a federally recognized tribe. A Certificate of Indian Blood card or document is generally accepted proof of membership in a federally recognized tribe. Other institutions like any state college in Montana offers FREE tuition to anyone who is at least ¼ Indian blood and have financial need. The trick here is to apply to them all and see how you can make yourself qualify.
Here are some sources of help for locating Financial Aid for Native Americas: http://www.finaid.org/otheraid/natamind.phtml http://www.lib.msu.edu/harris23/grants/3specpop.htm http://www.phx.devry.edu/financial_info/native_american_scholarships.asp
These are a sampling of the money available for people in the health care professions. Remember not to be turned off by word in the title or the description. For example, if you are going into health care management and the program says it is for nursing, contact the program and tell them that your studies will also benefit nurses because you will be managing nurses in your profession. It is important to always see how you can make your objective in life also meet the objective of the program giving out the money. You are the one that has to be creative at making this match. The program office has no motivation to do this for you.
The Nursing Scholarship Program (NSP or "Nursing Scholarship") is a competitive Federal program which awards scholarships to individuals for attendance at schools of nursing. The scholarship consists of payment for tuition, fees, other reasonable educational costs, and a monthly support stipend of $1,100 per month. You can go to school full-time or part-time. In return, the students agree to provide a minimum of two years of full-time clinical service (or an equivalent part-time commitment, as approved by the NSP) at a health care facility with a critical shortage of nurses. You must be willing to be placed at a health care facility with a critical shortage of nurses. You could be placed in the District of Columbia, Guam, or the Virgin Islands.

I know I have given you a lot of sources and have probably overwhelmed you. I apologize for this. But it seems that nothing really worth doing in life is easy. There are no real secrets to most of life. The real secret is that it takes work. But as I usually say, "who cares if it takes you a few hours or even a few days or weeks." Most of us have no idea what we did in the last few weeks. Sure, nothing in life is guaranteed. But you now have the best information available on the subject, and in here can lay a fabulous opportunity to improve your life. This is your life and it is special to you and to the world. I hope what I have given you helps you grow into your full potential.
Good luck and remember that help truly is out there, it just sometimes takes the dickens to find it. Keep up the dream to improve yourself.
