Pima Community College (Tucson AZ) Actual cost of attendance
- 0Jul 15, '11 by mesalight257Ok so,
I have one pre-requsiite course left until I can apply for the actual pima nursing program (The two year RN program).
Having absolutely no luck getting a straight answer from admissions on the cost (of course) , they claim its roughly 4000, can this be right?
I have my co-requisites as well and for all of those credits combined it was about this much. Heres the breakdown I'm looking at...
DPS Criminal Background Check $65.00
CPR Course $35.00
Course Fees $200.00
Uniforms/Shoes/Clinical Supplies Varies
Required Textbooks / Lab Supplies $1,395.00
Toxicology Screening $15.00
Review Course (optional) $100 - 400.00
Graduation Application Fee $15.00
NRS 104/104LC/104LS Nursing Process I
NRS 105/105LC/105LS Nursing Process II
NRS 201/201LC Nursing Process III
NRS 202/202CA/202CB Nursing Process IV
NRS 203 Trends and Issues in Nursing
36 total credits plus books etc
Currently working as a pct/cna
Anyone who recently got accepted who can shed some light on the actual cost? are the credits the same as other pima courses?
thanks in advance

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.
- 0Jul 22, '11 by denaaThey changed the price of the nursing course starting Spring 2012. Non nursing courses are about $52 a credit hour but the nursing core classes will be about $71 a credit hour. Most of your other fees look right on. I am just starting block one and my fees are $806.00 for tuition and fees and $762.00 for only the required books.
