Getting an education is expensive. A recent Bloomberg article shows that US college prices have increased steadily over the past decade, and this trend has been increasing faster than inflation. For those considering nursing as a career, education costs will no doubt be a concern. The all-in costs of nursing school – which include tuition and fees, books and supplies, room and board, and other living expenses – will vary depending on several factors.

Aspiring nurses have many options for private school education in Massachusetts. Institutions like Medical Professional Institute, Northeastern University, and Regis College offer degree and certificate programs across many nursing disciplines. These private schools frequently offer greater prestige and smaller class sizes than their public counterparts; this in turn drives higher levels of student performance and satisfaction. Some private nursing schools in Massachusetts are also religiously affiliated, including Anna Maria College and College of Our Lady of the Elms.

There are many benefits to attending public school, especially for students partial to staying within their local state or county. Chief among these is that public school students enjoy lower tuition due to funding from the state government. In Massachusetts alone, there are over 35 public schools from which aspiring nurses can choose. This number includes vocational, career, and community colleges, as well as state universities such as University of Massachusetts (five campuses), Westfield State University, and Worcester State University.
