- 0Jan 6, '13 by SL2014Hello,I am a BSN graduate from chamberlain. I was overall... Ok... With the school. But I will caution you against spending 70k on a BSN- nursing is very over saturated and if you are financing your education the 1000/month student loan payment almost isn't worth it. As far as transferring- it should transfer fine. Most schools only care that you got a BSN, they may require additional biochem or physics but that's generally unavoidble but that's ok because most schools require 2minimum years of critical care experience to apply. Again- school is mediocre but the debt... Wow. 23.00 and hour minus taxes and student loan- that's only 1400 a month, and that's IF you are fortunate enough to get a job.
- 0Jan 6, '13 by Yvillarreal05Thank you sarah for your advice; Yes its a lot of money, not to mention the student loans that I was going to get for the school was not going to be enough to cover the whole 2 school years.. I had to get another loan out in order to start, which to me it was wow! a lot of money.. thats why I decided to just try to get into one of the state university for the nursing program.
- 0Jan 7, '13 by houstonrnhopefulUnless you are not transferring any credit into the school, your tuition should not be 70,000. As far as out of pocket expenses go, the estimate they give you for the semester is always higher than the actual charge because the estimate includes books. If you are a savy shopper and buy used from amazon, classmates, or rent them that's $700 off the semester in itself. Also, if you have bachelors already you should have no problem with having to retake courses.. Many of my classmates have a previous degree and started out in year 2. I started in year 2 because I transfered in alot of credit hours and only had to take 3 gen ed courses there that were not offered at my community college. PM me if you have any questions
- 0Jan 8, '13 by Yvillarreal05Housotnrnhopefull, approx it was gonna be 60k no more than 70k your right, I was not going in for the 3 years but 2 same as you, but either way its still a lot, i was not gonna get that much from student loans, gov student loans was gonna give only a certain amount and whatever was left I had to pay out of pocket or I had to get another loan, what would happen if I couldn't get out that loan in order to finish the program? wait and take a break until I come up with the money in order to finish the program and graduate?
To me it is a lot and I don't want to be in major debt later and cant go to another school because of the debt with them.
As i mention previously, I really did not like the enrollment process experience I had with them..
- 0Feb 13, '13 by MinicyniI am feeling the same way. I just started taking some pre reqs at my community college and am appealed by the 3 yr BSN but I am really afraid I won't be able to pay for it. I'm only getting $10K a year and that's not gonna be enough, I'd still have a $1,400 payment a month... I don't know what to do
