    I was in the Sentara BSN open house with a woman who was taking classes at Bryant and Stratton. The people in the open house were discussing how expensive these classes were versus a community college...I know she was going for a medical assistant, but I would assume the rates are the same.

    There is nothing on their website with their tuition rates. I've learned that usually means they are way too expensive!

    I found a list on Google that said the tuition is around 15,000 per year for full time or 480 per credit hour(part time)..not sure how accurate this is,but if it's true then its cheaper than other private programs which are 50,000 for adn.

    They have a college catolog on their website.It lists the costs..something like 7,300 per semester.The semesters are 7-15 weeks or something and single courses are around 600 per credit hour,The nursing program is 72 credit hours.Full time would be 7,300(ballpark figure) times 5 semesters,plus 1600 for extra fees(4 nursing classes),lab fees,registration,books(50-900) per semester and other FEES....I believe in the end its around 45,000-50,000.The good thing about this school is that they accept 50% transfer credits and that is great for cutting those costs.You can also take most of your prerequisites online.....I still don't know which entrance test they give...Does anyone know?

    I am currently in my 3rd semester at BS wisconsin RN program. It costs about 7500 a semester and you go year round. (With short breaks between semesters). It is a very competitive program and I like the school alot BUT the program is very intense and it can be very hard to work while going to school. I recently quit my job to bring up my GPA. Also, if you fail two classes you are kicked out of the nursing program for good. Many students who do not have prereq classes transferred cannot go fulltime and is too much..and when you start clinical rotations (in my 2nd now) it can be hard to work since by 2nd rotation you have two days of clinicals a week plus your theory classes and tests every week. The school may be getting a BSN program so the rumor is.. Overall Im glad I transferred here from MATC I really like the instructors they really do help you try to succeed..but its not gonna be easy at all!

    Two weeks ago I met with the college and inquired about the program. Unfortunately, i was very turned off. I felt like I was interviewing the admissions consultant. I was also turned off by the fact that when i asked about clinicals over the phone, i was told one thing, then when i asked again during the meeting i was told another. They lady said they are associated with HCA hospitals. I asked for a list. She gave me a list with anything but. Clinicals are done in jails, nursing homes, and rehabilitation centers, in charlottesville, Piedmont, and Cumberland Co. Which is NOT close to the richmond campus. The programs will run about $35K, and since it's brand new, their first class of 5 people graduated in december. And only 2 have been placed/passed the exam.
