MICU RN, check your numbers, but my program in tuition, will only cost me about $30,000, the same amount my friend is paying at a smaller school.
But as Sam says, go where you feel it is the best program for you. I chose Georgetown, because I wanted a clinical site without residents (not availible at G-towns hospital, you have to go to Sinai, or another outlying site), access to good instruction, (I thought it was important to not be taught on the nursing model of teaching. I think nursing style education coddles the student too much). Currently, I am taking classes that are the same as the Med students.
I got into G-town, even though I thought i wouldn't, they were my pie in the sky school, as in, the application only costs 75$ why not apply. So try for a couple of schools you thin you might not get into, you might get a suprise.
Anyway, don't limit yourself, apply where you want, and throw some gimmies in there too.
