    I would have not gone to school for my Masters if it had been $100k! NO! There are people that do it, I even work with a few. It boils down to what you really want... but for me I am terrified of debt. Also, I think it's a good idea to look for public universities that have hospitals you can work at with a tuition discount. I did this and my Masters education cost me about $7k including books and fees.

    Thank you! Nothing wrong with going to a nice public university with a good local reputation. The cost of my tuition and books is 18k. My hospital has assisted me with 5k of that cost, meaning my MSN-FNP is costing me 13k. This December I will be graduating debt free, and a friend of mine I know going to Georgetown will have over 70k in debt. Granted she didn't have to find preceptors and I did, but I'll take the 70k in savings to do a little of the leg work myself.
