Clarification of terms: There are 2 types of educational institutions. Traditional and Commercial. The correct term for those high-tuition, non-traditional schools is "commercial" or "investor owned". Traditional schools can be either governmental (part of a state or locally-run system) or private (such as those run by churches or the Ivy League schools). Traditional schools' primary mission is that of education & research ---- NOT generating profit for investors.
Are you financially able to handle the tuition burden of a commercial school without accumulating a huge student loan debt? If not - I would strongly advise you to avoid this route at all costs. Some of these 'schools' are charging outrageous tuition just because there is so much demand. Honestly, $100,00 for a BSN??? New grads are finding that it takes a long time to land that first nursing job... adding the stress of impending large loan payments to the mix is a disaster.
Is it possible for you to relocate to another area for nursing school
? If so, you should explore that option. There may be programs in other parts of the country that are in less competitive environments. Who knows, you may even like Wyoming... LOL. I would advise against going down the path of least resistance to a non-nursing degree that won't be of any value - just racking up more tuition expense for an nonmarketable degree. If you really feel that you can't wait, take a look at other health careers such as Respiratory Therapy, Radiology Tech, Lab Science, PTA, OTA, etc. Salaries are in the same ballpark as nursing, and jobs are out there. Later on, you can go back and get that RN if you still want to.
Best of luck in your decision.
