I am new to the site. Currently I am taking prereqs to hopefully be accepted to Loyola University's ABSN program in January. My question is, is there any other ABSN programs out there where I could earn my BSN in less than a 16 months that is not as costly as Loyola's program which is roughly $47,000. I am divorced and now a single mother and will need to take out extra loans to pay my bills once I start this program because I will be unable to work while taking this intense program which is roughly 8 hours a day, 5 days a week.
Also, has anyone who has joined the ABSN program worked? If so, what kind of work were you able to do while in such an extensive program?
I consider this a sacrifice that I need to make in order to obtain a secure employment future and I will be working doing something I am passionate about (helping people). I currently have a BS Business Management degree.
Any help would be grately appreciated.
