Can you tell me about how much books cost you per semester of nursing school? I've heard they're very expensive, so I'd like to get a rough estimate.
Last night I started my first pre-req class (chemistry -- joy of joys), and the professor asked how many of us were there because we're going into nursing. When about 3/4 of the class raised their hands, he said, "You'd better be prepared to open your wallets!" Yikes! I know the actual program at my school will cost me about $20,000 for 2 years, and I'll get financial aid for that, but that doesn't include books.
I'm planning to quit my job and go to nursing school in the fall and I'm also getting married, so my boyfriend and I are trying to estimate what our expenses will be to make sure his salary can cover it all.
