I'm a male BSN student at Westcoast University, paying $135k for my degree; I'm graduating in less than a year and the job market and starting salary "rumors" is really causing anxiety when I think about finishing the program. Many former students are saying that it's extremely difficult to find a position as a new grad, even more so if you don't have much experience or things you can put on your resume (I do not). I hear starting salaries of $21-$23 an hr, I think half of that would go towards my loans. It's really disturbing and I'm hoping to find a sense of inspiration towards everyone here that being an RN will be worth it. I enjoy psych and peds very much! I would like to work in one of those units one day.
