How much are you paying...

  1. How much are you paying for nursing school (this semester)?

    I just looked at my future dues for this coming Autumn Semester and have about 7000 dollars (not including books) to pay for. No scholarship money, and what it worse is that I am only taking thirteen credit hours.

    I was wondering, how much are you going to have to pay for? How much do you average? And how many credit hours are you taking?

    My school charges about $100/credit hour. So for the 11 credits I'm taking in the Fall, it's right around $1100 with all of the fees for this and that. I can't complain at all. I'm in an ADN program at a community college.

    I go to a state University and I pay $1600 a semester for a ADN program. We purchased a kit of books first semester that carries through the whole program, so I do not have to buy books anymore I have 15 credits this semester.

    100$ a credit hour. 1280$ for 12 credits. ADN program. I was at a 12000$ a year BSN program, but decided I didn't like their focus and didn't want to spend the money. (I plan on getting a DNP and I would rather spend the money on that)

    I guess I should add that I'm in an (overpriced) BSN program ,if that means anything.

    Tuition and fees is a little less than $12K for my first semester of a CNL program, 18 graduate credit hours.

    I'm in a BSN program, and it's a little over 4k a semester id say. After financial aid and my scholarship, I shouldn't owe anything or much at all. I have an apt though and no job so i still take out loans for that. I average 13-16 hours every semester.

    About $4200 a semester including our tuition differentials for being a satellite campus and clinicals.

    Can i ask what loans an scholarships you got? I'm not in a BSN program but will be starting a ADN program and am in the same boat. I have rent and two kids to support. It has been hard looking for good info.
    Thanks

    I got my A.A.S and did the 2 year RN program at a community college. I did not pay for it because I had Florida Bright Futures scholarship. However, I am now in a Bachelor's program at an online university and man am I paying... It's costing me about $30,000+ for my bachelors.

    I currently am single, and my mom still claims me on her income tax. She was a teacher's assistant making about 12,000 dollars a year, so I definitely qualify for a pell grant which is 2,775. I do not have a job either. What state do you live in? I recently just received a 2K loan/scholarship through state aid. I live in MS. Basically, it's a program if I work in MS for a year, it will convert to a scholarship. I have lived in MS my whole life, so it works out pretty good. Does your state offer anything similar to this? Some of the secretaries that work at my nursing school send us emails about scholarship every now and then too. Cnoto34, I will post them here if they send me any before school starts.

    My BSN program cost me about 3k per semester with tuition and fees, and another 300 or so for books. It would have been another 1k for books if I had bought them at the bookstore, but I could usually find them at Amazon for half of the bookstore price or less. Don't ever buy books at the bookstore if you are trying to save money. It's just not a good idea. I usually averaged about 18 credit hours per semester.
