    I was doing a LPN To BSN program and quit due to oweing about 25k when it was all said and done. I went back to a ASN program for the experience and cheaper cost. Now I want to go back and get my BSN, and I checked the same school out and it is going to cost me about 19k for an ASN to BSN. I didn't save very many $, and not very much time either.
    I owe about 10k for the community college and the University combined, and that seems like a mountain of money to pay back to me.

    Nothing...We have a grant that as long as you make a 3.0 the state pays for your AD and/or most of your BS degree. I do have some credit card debt to get paid off but no where near what you guys are talking about.

    When it's all said and done I'll probably owe around 10,000$ for tuition/living expenses for an ADN degree. When I get my BSN I'll have no problem living at home when my parents offer to pay for rent and tuition if I'm under their house.

    my total loan of $190,000 is mainly because my wife is a stay at home mom and I have zero income. this includes both private and federal loans the cost of my CRNA program is around $30,000 (this does not include the gas and living arrangements I need in the clinical areas) give or take a grand or two. The money is irrelevant with the return I will be getting when I start working this September. Take out as much money as you will think you will need and add another $10,000. I used sallie mae (40,000), Teri for (30,000 x 2 loans) about $50,000 in federal loans and about another 12,500 private loan from somewhere. and another $15,000 private loan from someone else. So probably a little less than $190,000, unless I am forgetting another loan somewhere.

    That HAS to be a st. bernard pup...? Had one...once upon a time...

    Miss her! She was cute, but her and my swiss mountain dog did NOT get along!!! And, i am pretty sure she got some brain damage from the beer she was fed as a pup! (not from me, but from her owner)
    But, still, has to be the cutest pup, HANDS DOWN! Snow white accents, big puppy eyes and the drool! Can't beat that drool!
