I was accepted to the University of Miami for the BSN Basic Nursing program. I am a transfer student coming from Los Angeles. What do you think about the school? Do you stay on campus or off campus? Is there anything that you would recommend about staying on or off campus? What have you heard about the traditional(Basic) nursing program?
I went to visit the University of Miami because they're starting up a CRNA program that I was very interested in and I wanted to check out the campus. The main campus is beautiful. It is located in a very cushy part of Miami called Coral Gables, where only people who have a lot of money can afford to live. The school has an excellent reputation. Its very pretty, very big, and very well recognized but also a VERY, VERY expensive private school. The tuition is over $3000 for a 3-credit course, which puts it right up there with the over-the-top Ivy League universities in terms of cost. If they're offering you a scholarship or you can afford to pay out of pocket to go there, then I would say go for it. But, I would think twice about doing the RN program at a school like this if I had to take out student loans to go there. You'd be looking at over $40,000 a year in tuition, fees, and room and board! Here is a link to their website if you want proof. http://miami.edu/UMH/CDA/UMH_Main/1,...6072-3,00.html
IMO its kinda outrageous to spend $160,000 for a BSN degree. And this does not include day to day living expenses. I personally don't think its worth it, but thats just my opinion. If you can afford it then go for it!
