Traditional Curriculum Estimated Program Costs

Traditional Curriculum Estimated Program Costs = $13,053

The estimated cost list provides an overall estimate of nursing program costs. The costs quoted on this list are only estimates and are subject to change without prior notice. The maintenance fees are based on tuition and required campus fees for 2021-2022, and are for enrollment in nursing courses only. The other expenses are for nursing courses and nursing related expenses only. Expenses for other courses must be added to the costs listed below. Travel to and from campus and clinical sites is excluded.

Check with the bookstore each semester for the books required in each course. Note the textbook list/expense is heavy in the first course as many of the books purchased in the first term are used throughout the remainder of the nursing program. For this reason, students are encouraged not to sell their textbooks at the end of each term. Students are also encouraged to check with faculty before purchasing a used textbook as a course may require use of online publisher resources, which are not available, or require an additional access fee, when using a used textbook. Estimated costs are rounded to the next whole number.
