Hey everyone, so I just stumbled upon the new(ish) Emory distance ABSN program! I was so excited to finally have found a program like this since I live in a rural area and there aren’t many local options. Plus, relocation wasn’t an option. I’ve still got a bunch of hoops to jump through but I guess I started to hesitate when I saw the $70k tuition!! Now, that may not be a lot to some of you but where we live that is a HUGE investment. I guess I’m stuck between a rock and a hard place in that my family could never afford for me to be in school for a regular 4 year program and even an accelerated program that is an hour and a half away is over 18 months. So although this would be the most expensive option it also is the quickest and would work well with my current situation. So please, anyone, tell me why YOU want to go to Emory versus other options??

And if there’s anyone out there that has completed the prerequisite courses I’d love suggestions on where to take them online.

For anyone that’s in the program now how is it going? What’s your daily schedule like?

And lastly, there is an EMTcertification class being offered near me soon. Do you think this would be a good thing to do? I’d still have to get my CNAcertification as well.

Sorry for the long post but thanks for reading this far!

Wow!! That is expensive!!

I would wait and do more research. I do not know your background and education, but have you taken all the science classes needed? If money is an issue for you, maybe get the CNA or become and LPN at FIRST so you can make some cash and have experience working in the field. With good grades and a way to make money, get into a local state program for either an associates or bachelors degree. 

Most people have to use loans ( both federal and Private) to afford ANY schooling. I would suggest you find people in the program and pepper them with questions. You also need to do ALOT of research on other programs. Make a list of programs you like and then ask about admission- cheap and easy. Lay the groundwork first.

 

Good LUCK!!
