that is why you need to motivate yourself and finish as soon as possible. the earliest you finish, the less money you spend.
i enrolled last year and signed up for a now defunct promotion where if you finish in less than a year, all the nursing exams (including repeating an exam) plus the fcca, and graduation fee are all included in total of $1600 i believe. plus $2000 for the cpne. so that's $3600 for the program. i finished in less than a year but of course i had extra expenses for other materials such as study guides/books for the exams, hotel and cpne workshop, and other related cpne expenses. so maybe less than $6k for me. plus my job will reimburse me for that $3600 (just submitted the forms and now waiting for the check).
not bad especially now that i am an rn, my job will upgrade me from lpn to rn pay which is extra $10k+ a year. a good investment if i may say so.
good luck with whatever program works for you.
