Hey Smiles :-)
Let's see -- Tuition is a per credit fee -- I think it is around $100/credit if you live in Sussex County. Nur.1 , 2, & 3 are all 9-10 credits -- so tuition is about $1000 per semester. The other fees add up though - including books (figure at least $200-$500/semester) and uniforms (I think I spent somewhere around $100??) Nursing Shoes
(Walmart - $20) and a Stethescope (I splurged and got a Littman at Allheart.com -- cost me about $70).
I had started at William Paterson and was completing my "pre-reqs" when I disovered that it would take a lot less time (and $$) if I transferred to a community college. I checked into CCM -- I had gotten my AS in Chem from there -- but since I was no longer a resident of Morris County I was told my chances were slim to none to get accepted -- so I pursued the program at Sussex.
I had to take a few pre-reqs (you will need A&P 1 and 2, Microbiology, and Basic Chem). They will take a lot of your credits -- after taking the rest of my pre-reqs at Sussex I took my NLN (a standardized test) and then applied to the program. I got in -- my grades were pretty good - and I did well on the NLN.
I know that the next program starts in January of 2008 and will be an evening program. Give the college a call and have someone look over your transcript -- I can't remember the person's name right now -- but make sure it is someone directly involved with the Nursing program :-)
Any more questions -- feel free to e-mail me! Or you can post here :-)
