I got accepted into a BSN program for the Fall of 2012! I am so excited to start.... except I am worried about how I am going to pay for school.
I was told I no longer get any financial aid because I already have a bachelors degree in another field and received financial aid throughout all 4 years of college ( I went to a city college which was cheap: around $4,500 per year which financial aid covered 100% of expenses).
The BSN program which I was accepted to as a transfer student is $11,145...A SEMESTER (if I were to take 12-16 credits)! I am really worried about taking out loan after loan after loan if I stay in school the approximate 3 1/2 years they say it will take me to get the BSN. I don't want to graduate with massive debt. I wont be able to work full time anymore once I start the program either, so I am saving up from now until the fall but that money will only cover about 1 semester worth of classes!
I don't even know if I can qualify for any scholarships!
Any advice? How are you all paying for school? Loans? Financial Aid? Scholarships? Out of pocket?
