    About $1500 for tuition and books at the local CC.

    I paid $200.00 for 10 credits, I have yet to buy all my books but I am sure it will double if not triple my tuition.

    I got out of my 1 year second degree BS program with about 75K in loans.

    Yeah, you read that right. Some of it's living expenses, but still.

    My $28,000 does not include living expenses, books, stethoscope (all those type things), day care, gas for the 110 mile round trip daily commute, etc....

    Question...you had $75K in loans, how do you/did you pay them off? I am worried about this as I will have a lot in loans as well.

    $1300 a semester, roughly depending on number of credit hours.

    I attended a Southern California fast-track LVN program in 2004 and 2005, and the tuition was $19,995 for 1 year.

    I now attend a community college in Texas, and the tuition is $50 per credit hour. I am currently enrolled in 17 credit hours, so my tuition is $850 for this semester. Books are entirely another story.....
    North Dallas: I pay 18,500. 16 month LVN, nights and weekends. includes books, 2 sets of uniforms for clinicals, immunizations(if needed), 2 drug screens, uhh, stethoscope! and a 3 day NCLEX-PN review course. it's pretty nice.

    COMMUTER, are you bridging? (Good for you!) Where are you going? me and the classmates talk about "when we can bridge" and where, all the time. So far, I think the girls have found el centro, trinity valley (in Kaufman?) and twu. I heard UT-Dallas but I couldn't find anything about it.

    my sister had 90,000 bucks in loans to pay back once she got out of regular college, then this accelerated NP program. She got a great job at the Mayo Clinic, and they are now all paid off. lots of jobs have tuition reimbursement, or loan repayment, as long as you agree to work for the company for X amount of years.

    At orientation they told us that, start to finish, the ASN program was about $10,000. So far, I haven't had to pay a dime. I've had federal pell grants all through my GenEd and I'm still receiving them for NS.

    Community college, 2 year associate's program.

    It's around $90 a credit hour. I've spent close to $1300 this semester already on books and tuition. And that's not counting the $130 I spent on uniforms (a Christmas gift) and another $150 on a stethoscope, bandage scissors and shoes (another Christmas gift). Ok, so I want pricey shoes, but I've had foot problems, and there is no way I'm going to be in pain before I've even gotten a "real" job. And the nursing program director said you don't want a "cheap" stethoscope if you're planning on making a career of nursing.

    Up until now, I've been lucky. Community college is really a deal, we've been able to pay cash for all the prerequisites I've done. But, we don't have that kind of money for nursing school lying around. So I've got Stafford loans. I figure it's going to be around $12,000 when it's all said and done for an associate's. Hopefully I'll have a job that will help pay for the BSN I want.
