Nursing school can be an expensive endeavor, regardless of the school or program you choose. In addition to the costs of tuition and registration, there are additional expenses such as textbooks and school supplies, room and board, and general living expenses. In order to make an informed decision about which school to attend, it is important to factor all of these expenses into your budget.

Nurses can pursue pre-licensure programs at either public or private schools, each of which offers unique advantages. Although private schools tend to be more expensive, they are generally regarded as more selective and academically rigorous. Private schools tend to have smaller class sizes, making it easier for students to get to know their professors and seek individual help. They also tend to have smaller campuses with fewer students in general, making for more intimate, tightly-knit communities.

Aspiring nurses can choose to complete pre-licensure programs at either public or private schools. While both options have their merits, public colleges and universities are subsidized by the government, making them affordable options that are ideal for students with financial concerns. Public schools often have more flexible course offerings as well, accommodating students who have jobs and extracurricular commitments, and making it easier to earn a degree on a part-time basis.
