Decent MSN/CRNA School with Low Cost of Living?

  1. Not that this is a huge consideration, but with a wife and 2 kids we will have to make ends meet some how while I am in school. Any opinions on a decent program with 'affordable' housing, gas, etc...?

    I don't know how much Texas Weslyan University's tuition is but they admit quite a few people a year to their CRNA program. And correct me if I am wrong ya all Texans out there, but I think Texas is a rather affordable state (I don't even think that they have state tax!). Also check out the University of Texas at Houston Health Science Center. I am hoping to attend there someday for my NP in emergency nursing but I also think they offer a CRNA program. And if you and your wife and family live in Texas for one year before starting the program, you would qualify for the instate tuition which is only $1750 per semester!!

    Good luck to you!

    You might try the Mayo Clinic in Rochester Minn. The tuition was really cheap and when I was there at least housing seemed affordable.

    The cost of living is low in the midwest, so any of those schools.
