Hey everyone, not sure if there is a similar post like this somewhere, but I thought I would make one to let you know the ADDITIONAL costs associated with the nursing program at Adelphi. I am not sure if other schools
are like this as well or if it is just here but if it is please post because it would be great to know I am not alone! lol. So in addition to the higher tuition and extra fee of a "nursing package" that you have to pay once you register, there is approximately 500$ on a nursing fundamentals textbook bundle that comes with dvds so you cant really shop it elsewhere. Then 220$ for a nursing central application that you need to have on your phone for when you are in clinicals in the hospital (however last semester we had an entire section in class on not using your cellphone in a hospital setting because of HIPPA laws) which also forces you to get a smartphone if you do not have one (most people do already but still) THEN you have to purchase an EHR program called Neehr perfect which is 60$, Adelphis scrubes 160$, a stethoscope approx 80-90$ after shipping, and additional books because the bundle package doesnt include everything which is another 200$. Granted a bunch of these books are used for the following semester, and most nurses claim they still refer back to them once they get a job but SERIOUSLY?! This is craziness!! At the very least can we just download these textbooks to a nook or something?? They are literally the size of half a dictionary! Anyway rant over, just wanted to give everyone a heads up this is what you are looking forward to if you go to Adelphi!
