Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing at Baldwin Wallace University

The comprehensive cost of the accelerated Bachelor of Science in nursing program for the cohort beginning fall 2021 is $39,000 for the entire 15-month, 63-credit-hour program. Included in the program costs are: tuition, books, two uniform sets and a lab coat, a stethoscope, consumable laboratory supplies, HESI Exit Exam (first test) testing fee, malpractice insurance and parking fee.

Students use a variety of options to cover the program costs, and must also consider living expenses during the 15-month program. As a post-baccalaureate program, nursing students do not qualify for federal grants. In addition to personal savings or other outside resources, most nursing students rely heavily on financial assistance through federal direct student loans and private educational loans. Federal loans will not cover the entire cost of the program.

The American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) has information on additional education loan and scholarship opportunities for nursing students.

Because of the intensive, accelerated curriculum and schedule of this program, students are strongly encouraged not to seek or continue employment while enrolled in the nursing program.

While the scheduling and coordination of clinical rotations and labs are covered in the comprehensive program cost, nursing students will incur additional fees to cover rescheduling costs associated with missed clinicals and labs that must be made up.
