How Much Is Your Bridge Program?
- 0Oct 27, '13 by pookypAnd how are you paying for it? My friend is trying to convince me to go her school but it sounds too pricey. Just wanna see if this is the norm and how much it is around the globe.

Hell, there are people attending Chamberlain's expensive a--s RN program but some students are able to get the degree without drowning in debt.
My bridge will be about $16,000. I'm going 'diploma' again. I have about $13,000 in GI BILL benefits. I'm going to pay the diff out of pocket. Initially, I wanted to pocket the money but...the thought of going back to community college and all the hoop-jumping to get into a degree granting nursing school?
I just can't do it. I'm a second careerist and I just want everything completed...yesterday. If you understand the feeling.
I do plan to CC+bridge to an online BSN later. For now, I just want to be an RN.
- 0Nov 1, '13 by TheCommuter Senior ModeratorMy LPN-to-RN (ASN) bridge program was $23,500 for students who needed to complete all prerequisite courses through the school.
I was able to transfer the majority of the prerequisite classes that I had previously completed at a local community college, so I ended up paying about $19k.
I paid for the schooling by working 32 hours per week while attending school. I also used federal student loans.
