I was accepted as an Early Decision applicant, so I'm unsure if the RD-ers have heard back yet. I'm super excited to start, and my brain is on overload trying to figure out how to pay for this. I received an Early Decision Fin Aid estimate a few weeks ago and total cost of the program for 2013-2014 will be about $107k...EEEEK!..
I'll be applying for the federal government's Nurse Corps scholarship as well as applying for Hopkins' Fuld Fellowship for Patient Care Quality and Safety. I've also found tons of other scholarship opportunities and am currently in the process of sifting through those. The financial portion of it is very nerve-racking for me because I'll be paying for this degree on my own! My mom helped with my first Bachelors of course, but this will simply be too much for her. I'm not married either, so there's no support there. But I don't care what I have to do, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and I WILL find the money to pay for this.
In any case, best of luck for a favorable admissions decision!

Yeah, crazy right?..but keep in mind they gave an estimate for the total prog, not just tuition. Tuition itself was estimated to be about $68K..but with everything else included it comes to about $107K. The good thing is that I'll be able to cut about 25K of this immediately. I won't need housing( I'm planning to stay with family), or travel/transportation (b/c it's only a two hour drive to my home city) or health insurance (b/c I'll still be on my mother's policy).
Here's the full breakdown that JHU gave me: Estimated Cost of Attendance - Accelerated BSN Program-Fall Entry
|Tuition (Fall 2013-Fall 2014) || |
|Matriculation Fee || |
|Books and Supplies || |
|Uniforms & Equipment || |
|Housing || |
|Board || |
|Personal Expenses || |
|Travel || |
|Medical Insurance || |
|Health Fee || |
|Total Estimated Cost || |

|Insane isn't it??!!...You ARE lucky to have earned your first degree without loans. I took about $25K out on my first degree, which was pennies when I think about the degree's actual $230K pricetag, but still DEBT nonetheless. We'll figure this out though. Good luck! || |
