Nursing School Cost
The price difference between a BSN degree from an Ivy League university and an associate degree from your local community college is in the tens of thousands of dollars, so price can be an important consideration.
When consider your overall budget, remember that nursing school has other costs besides tuition. Of course, the most obvious is decreased income if you have to cut down on your hours at work to shoehorn school into your schedule. RELATED TIP: Try comparing the cost of a distance learning nursing degree to traditional classroom learning programs. Don't forget to calculate, or at least consider things like nursing uniforms, books, fees, extra daycare costs and meals you will end up eating out instead preparing at home.
