    I graduated in 2005 ADN with 0 debt, used the GI bill from the Army, and got through. Now I'm in RN-BSN, around $3000 a semester which ain't bad, and working on scholarships for that so I'm hoping to not have to pay to much out of pocket when its all said and done.

    Nursing is a second career for me. I only took out $4,500 in loans for my ADN, but I had $12,000 in loans for my BSA. If I had gone the nursing route in the first place, I'd only be $12,000 in debt for a BSN. I had a lot of grants and scholarships that paid for my first degree. I also went to a public university for my bachelors degree, and a CC for my ADN.

    After an AA, an AAS, an ADN, BSN, and MSN-ACNP, I owe 30K. I never took a non-nursing course at a four year university and I've never not worked while in school. My strongest advice is to go to a state school and stick to federal loans only, leave the private loans as an absolute last resort, after begging family members.

    I'll owe about 4,000 for my ADN (state school). After I graduate and bridge to my BSN it'll cost me about 10,000.

    My ASN (when I graduate next summer) will be completely paid for through grants. When I do my RN to BSN, I have my husband's GI bill to use. So, my degree will cost me only cost of textbooks and supplies

    @MangoMonkey -- your post intrigued me about deferring loans to the gov until you make $55,000.... Can you tell me how you did that? I will be graduating in May.
    Thanks!

    (thread jack) Obviously, nursing students are a brainy, hard working and creative bunch of people!!! Kudos to all who have managed to achieve their educational goals with minimal or no debt. Huge accomplishment!!! (end thread jack)
