I am thinking about applying to some of the accelerated programs in Ohio(UC Accelerated MSN, Wright State Beacon, or Mt. St. Joseph MN) . I am concerned about financing the programs though. Currently still have 14k from undergrad, but really need to make a career change. I know that Mt. St. Joseph is like 35K. I emailed the director and she said that they do not offer scholarships. So I was wondering what kind of financial aid package they would offer. Is it all loans? What about those of you that go to UC or WSU? Anyone in the UC MSN been awarded the Yates fellowship or any other type of aid other than all loans? Also how do you like the program? Do you feel that you will be well prepared to start working?
BTW- I have considered just doing the associates program at Cincinnati State. Has anyone truly had to wait 3 years on the waiting list to start the clinical sequence?
Thanks in advance for your input.
