I don't know. Maybe I'm wrong.
I've never had any direct experience, but I've heard that there is a limit on how often you can file. So it might be easier to get a loan after filing (if your credit already sucked) since the lender knows you cannot file again for several years. But I would expect to have to bring a big down payment.

A bigger issue is that a lot of employers will run credit checks as a measure of responsibility. I work in finance and would obviously expect this to be an issue getting hired and wouldn't be surprised if this was also the case in nursing.
