Other Costs
Books New books cost approximately $150 per course. Students may purchase used books. Students are not required to purchase books and materials directly from the University. Many courses use eBooks and discounts are available from several publishers.
Costs associated with background checks and malpractice insurance Students enrolling in the RN to BSN/MSN or MSN program are required to establish a CastleBranch account that collects, tracks and monitors the documentation required for the practice experiences you will complete during your nursing program. Fees vary by state, please contact CastleBranch and your insurance company for actual costs.
Practicum Workroom A fee of $400 per 8-week term will be charged for students who need to enroll in one or more Practicum Workrooms to complete practice hours because they received transfer credit for one or more MSN courses that did not contain the required practice hours, or enrolled in the DNP Executive Leadership specialization and did not complete 400 practice hours during their master’s program. This allows students to earn the practice hours required to complete a MSN program (400 hours) or the DNP program (1,000 post baccalaureate hours). This fee is non-refundable once the 8 week term has commenced.
