Thanks for the info, that helps to clear up my questions about the cost. UC is too expensive overall for my budget.
In the research I have done on various online programs , quite a few of them charge instate tuition for their online NP programs. The costs of the 4 schools
I am interested in range from $320 to $475 per credit hour, including online/distance learning fees with 38-42 credits required for the FNP programs.
I want to pay out of pocket so I am very cost conscious, of course I also want a quality, accredited program. I will be going part time.
I wish you all the best as you complete your studies, congratulations on working towards your goal. UC has an excellent reputation. It looks like you made a choice that works for you and going part time certainly helps to make the costs bearable, as well.
Take care and thank you again for the information.
