I have posted a few times about my worries on getting into a nursing program and just wanted to share that I got accepted to Watts School of Nursing in Durham. I am so excited and I was wondering if any Watts students (or from other programs) had any advice on how they have gone about financing their education. I never had to deal with financial aid when I got my undergrad a few years ago and Watts is pretty pricey, (about $30,000). I plan to do the tuition reimbursement program with Duke when I graduate but I'm worried about what to do right now. Any advice on financial aid or private loan experiences would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!!!:heartbeat
Hi, I am tring to get into WSON myself....just waiting for the acceptance letter (I hope). How long did it take to get the acceptance letter? And anything else you could tell would be great. By the way congradulations, I know how hard you worked to get in.

When I go to the Mt Olive (RTP) site and click on the Health Science link- nothing happens...is this happening for everyone else? I was planning to do a few pre-reqs at the local CC, but since I need to do them at the Mt Olive school I'm trying to get some info.
Which study book did you all use for the entrance exam? The Nursing School and Allied Health Entrance Examinations or Master the Nursing School and Allied Health Entrance Exams, which is suggested on the Watts site.

Dreamon, Watts is $24,400 and I have heard but not sure that Mt.Olive is around $4000 to 5000 so yeah i guess 30,000 should cover it. Strange how it doesnt give you a total price. Oh and staff at Watts will not talk to you about any of that until after the session and passing the test. I hope that this helps, if you have anymore question feel free to ask...I know how hard it is to get answers about Watts.
