    Paid 28,000 for my LPN program in Oregon...ouch...I know. Luckily my dad is a veteran and that took care of the 20,000 leaving me with 8,000. I got so lucky. Anyway...with tuition it took care of two sets of scrub tops and bottoms with Valley Medical stitched in them. School was four days a week so I bought two more scrub tops and bottomings which was an extra 50 out of pocket.

    Private nonprofit LVN program in southern California in 2005. Although books, uniforms, and a stethoscope were all included, keep in mind that tuition was a whopping $19,995. Today, this same school charges nearly $30,000 for the same LVN program.

    I would have saved more money by paying cheaper tuition and while purchasing the required books and uniforms myself.

    Wow, I can see why everything would be included. Ok, now I don't feel bad for paying for books and scrubs.

    My tuition was about 3.5k for LPN program, malpractice and all fees included. Books were another 800$. We did have to buy our own uniforms and supplies.

    I went to a community college which was 52$ a credit hour.
    That is a great price to to for school. Your tuition, books and uniforms were less than my tuition alone. It's amazing to see all the vast range of tuition rates.
