I am interested in an actual student's account of how much their program is costing them. I'm talking books, tuition, room & board, living expenses, ect. Just as close to an all-inclusive price as you can get for your situation. Please list your school when posting as well.

Here is a flyer I got from one of the informational meetings
- May 28, '10 by CrazierThanYouUm. That is totally going to depend on the school you go to, the area you live in, etc.
But, I'll agree with the last poster: A lot.
- May 28, '10 by AltruisticRNHey I'm going to a pretty expensive school here but tuition is going to cost me around $60,000-$70,000 I believe for the 28 month 40 credit hour program. Books and supplies I'm guessing to be around $1,550. I am fortunate enough to live in a cheap apartment that costs only $400/mo in rent with gas and electric around 30-100 each a month depending on the time of year. Cable and internet $100/mo. I'm going to try and defer my undergrad student loans but if I can't that's another $300/mo. My car payment is $315/mo. cell phone $50/mo. Food $100-150/mo. Biyearly and yearly expenses are renter's insurance $110/yr. Car insurance $500/q6mo. There are some other expenses I'm not including here but need to think of such as renewing my RN license, car maintenance and gas, and some others. Hope this gives you a good idea. My health insurance is covered by the clinical site I chose but no dental or vision plan. Oh yeah, I'm single with no dependents so I have no help here it's all on me.
- Jun 8, '10 by versed88I finished two years ago and borrowed just for my tuition which was $50,000. I probably spent another $60K over 3 years on everything else. And that was living cheap.
- May 13 by NurseAMKWhats a realistic amount that I will be in debt if my spouse or myself doesnt have a job while I attend school?
- May 13 by missnurse01I found you again! lol, I just commented on a different thread under you. If neither of you is working? Well it depends on your bills. I think many are coming out with more than 100G's if you do not have living expenses saved up. That is if you can find a loan in todays climate for living expenses. Often fed loans cover school, but not living.
- May 14 by detroitdanoQuote from NurseAMKAn insane amount. Add up your monthly bills and estimate tuition for two years, add some extra (maybe $3000) for school books, tests, organizational fees, conference fees.Whats a realistic amount that I will be in debt if my spouse or myself doesnt have a job while I attend school?
Another thing to consider is health/dental/vision. A lot of schools offer insurance, but it's not cheap, and not the best either.
You should really have one person working in a relationship during school. I can't fathom taking on the debt to support both my wife and myself. She's working while I'm in school and carries insurance.
- May 15 by missnurse01that's me. I was the sole incomer earner before, so we won't have anyone working while I am in school.
