How to afford an accelerated MSN program?

  1. So I have been reviewing all the information on the school site I am attending and all the expenses are overwhelming. The books alone for summer used are roughly $500-$600. Then you factor in all the out of pocket expenses aside from just books like health insurance and I find myself worried. I don't just have 600-700 laying around extra to buy books before school starts?! What do people do in this situation? I have scoured used-book sites and ebay but there is still no mercy! Health insurance alone is astronomical too

    My school offers book rentals so you can pay around 60 dollars for one book for a semester. I believe and some other websites will let you do the same. I can't speak from personal experience though so I'm not sure about their policies and whatnot. This might be able to save you some money though.
