    How much are most student plans (e.g., through NSO)?

    The prices depend on your current work status PT or FT. I paid for FT although I don't work FT. I paid for FT just in case I pick up extra shifts that put me in FT position liability. Just a piece of mind to have.

    Wow, thank you all so much!! I honestly had not even considered carrying my own until we talked about it in class. I didnt know it was so common among nurses! Now, I am definitely going to look into it!

    Oh my gosh, do any of you work in L&D? That's where I am working as an extern right now. Just looked up pricing through AWHONN, and it's $385 annually! -_- I guess I rather be safe than sorry though!
