I don't know where you live, but $ 30,000 is way too expensive!!
I am going to a community college and it's going to be less than $ 6000, when I'm finished, including books and uniforms. I am NOT going to a BSN program, but there are some in my community, and they are not over $ 10,000.
I know some people think that's cheap, compared to what you stated, $30,000. And other's see it as $ 30,000 as being an investment, but why go broke!!
I don't even think I will make $ 30,000 the first year as a nurse
I praise you for going, we need more and believe me, the money is going to be the least of your worries in a few months, but IF I were you, I'd check around a little more, before getting in debt
I do know alot of my co-students are being reimbursed by the hospitals where they work, and if that is available to you, that's great :chuckle , but if the hospitals have to pay that amount, maybe that's one more reason, we pay so much in medical expenses when we have to go or be in the hospital!!:imbar
What ever you do, pay or go, Good Luck!!!
