Nursing credits are the same price as non-nursing courses. If you take your prerequisites/corequisites before you enter nursing school
, the most you have to pay for is 12 credits per semester.
Before entering, I had the cpr course ($30), dps fee, the hesi fee, the drug test fee ($15), a cheap stethoscope fee ($40), immunization fee ($100 - had to get a couple titers and mmr), physical fee ($20), and nursing clogs ($40). You can try to ask someone who has completed nursing school for their books or for a discount on books or buy them used. But yes, the fees are slightly accurate though you can pinch a few pennies here and there. As you are closer to graduate, you will want to do the Kaplan review
course and have to pay for licensing.
