Okay, I realize that none of the programs are cheap but I was accepted to John's Hopkins last year and deffered it for a year. I am a 45 yo male that is switching careers. I am wondering if it is really worth going to a name brand school with a $62,000 price tag (not including living expenses) or should I look for something less expensive. I am in California so anyplace I go I will be an out of state student. I would appreciate any thoughts from a guys perspective as well as any recommendations for schools.
You might want to consider other public universities. For example, George Mason University in Fairfax, VA has a 12-month ABSN program. Their instate tuition is about $16,000 (I think) for this 12-month program. Out-of-state tuition is around $30K for the full BSN.
