    Well that cancels out my idea. I didn't know they did it that way. Usually I email the teacher I am going to have and ask what books are required for the class. They in turn send the ISBN number and the rest is history. Hang in there.

    Oh wow, my tuition is much less than that. I may pay out about $2000 to $2500 for every last thing during any one of my nursing semesters. And I am in an ADN program for RN nursing.

    OH yeah, and I didn't have to wait any time after I had my prereqs done. I started up nursing school the very next semester (our program is GPA based to get in thankfully and not a wait list). Plus I also have the GI bill and it is a LIFE SAVER!!!

    Whew!! Thanks goodness for my ADN program at community college in NC!! My expenses are no where *near* that!!

    I think even if I added all the extras I buy (care plan books, study guides, NCLEX reviews, etc) AND my stethoscope, shoes, support socks, etc I wouldn't even come close.

    Thanks for the reassurance, I needed it. Any comment I have ever gotten it.....I payed such and such for mine etc. Yeah, wish I lived there too. LOL!
    Im paying $21,000 (not including pre-reqs) to get a diploma in nursing at a 3-year private school that I had to choose becasue it was the only night program around (oh and I get a associatess in science from the community college when I finish the program)

    Number of years the local community college told me I had to wait before starting their program: 5
    Number of years it took for them to tell me they had a spot available: 3
    Number of years my current program is: 2.5
    Number of semesters left: 1
    Difference in price between the local community college and my current program: too much
    Coming onto allnurses and realizing that I'm not the only one crazy enough to pay such an obcene amount of money for a degree: PRICELESS
