oops forgot a question! once we start online classes are we still doing clinics? just curious...i didnt even know they were online until orientation
Actually hate to burst your bubble but I heard it was upwards of $50,000 (Not including Books and materials) From what I have gathered, My financial aid will cover almost 13,000 a year. After 2 1/2 years the the program is that is about $32,000. The financial aid adviser estimated that my total loan cost should be around $35,000. I am sure Everyone's will vary a lot. Also I don't have to take all that money in loan, but it will help me cover books, and 'cost of living'. Dunno....
haha...wow i got really confused. 2 1/2 years? the program isn't even a full 2. also, if it costs 50 but you only take 35 and then you say you might not take it all in a loan...do you mean because you have other ways of paying for it? lol i guess i should run up there again and talk to someone!!!
Ok... Here's what I was told. :behindpc: If you are a (3rd year +) undergrad, they give you a max of $12,500 per 8 courses. So, I'm not sure how many courses we have exactly but you can do the math. Either way, the financial aid rep said that the maximum amount of loan they give you is usually not enough for Nursing students, and that pretty much all nursing students have to cover the remainder of program costs throuhg private lenders. So, since I probaly won't be working, that's what I am plan on doing. Unfortunately, of course, private lending comes at a higher price due to higher i-rates, but their terms of repayment are similar to those of Stafford loans.... I have already done a little research on that... I have not gotten my Fin/aid processed yet.... They are "working" on it.... supposedly...:typing I call them every week to get the status... Arghh!!
What do you mean online class? Are they mandatory online classes? Im so confused!
ok yeah i called them too. they said the max you can get is $12,500 (like you said) every 8 units and the ACTUAL cost (not counting books, etc.) is $13,000 every 8 units.
so when we are in online classes do we do clinics?
Danielle, when you say online classes, I think you mean the last 6-8 classes of the program, also called "community courses". My understanding is YES, you have clinicals while you have these classes... If I am wrong, someone please correct me! :)
Ok, is it 8 units or 8 courses?? Because it's a BIG difference...... I thought it was 8 courses....????
Just saw your post, Diana....I got the books last week and WOWWWW how are we going to learn all of that in a month?!?
Just thought I would jump in here and say, not to focus on child/newborn assessment. You get that in OB and Peds. However, you should know your developmental stages (ie Erickson, Freud).
Don't wait to read those chapters. The class really flies, and you can fall behind very quickly.
A good loan is the Medcap loan. I it is through Wells Fargo. They give very good rates, and the loan is designed especially for health care workers.
for those who are starting in april...next august we will not be attending in-person classes, only online.
hi diane. thanks for getting back to me bout those online classes... and its 8 units. at least that is what they told me today and what i remember them saying last time. haha and it IS a HUGE difference. i was confused cause wouldnt 8 units only be like 2 months worth? i guess maybe call again but both times they said "units". but it is also a quarter system so maybe that is where it is confusing.
Hmm....:thnkg: it is confusing.... Yeah, 8 units is like 2 classes... It can't be that we need $12,500 for just 2 classes, can it? That sounds weird... It wouldn't surprise me if they gave you inaccurate info - they are good at it!:angthts: (i have first hand experience with them messing up on my academic stuff.... like they put me in the wrong degree because of which i was initially ineligible for financial aid....:angryfire So, it took a lot of phone calls back and forth to have it changed to BSN... Idiots, they gave me everything related to BSN including orientation, scheduling, etc... but still had me in the wrong degree in their system! How stupid is that?)
So, I am glad we are finding out info from one another! :) This thread has been more informative than any NU representative! :[anb]: Thanks to ALL! :thankya:
