Good question. The cost of a nursing education has a lot of variables , starting with which degree path you are going to take. Associate degree (ADN) will take you 2 years once you get into the program. The second degree path is a bachelor of science degree in nursing ( BSN)..
As you can tell a 2 you degree cost less than 4 year because of time in college. Then if you choose a community College, state college or private college of lastly private schools(different from private college). Price can vary from 20k up to 100k.
I would recommend avoiding the private schools. The cost is not worth it They lure you in by being easy to get into, but education is no better then other ways to obtain your degree. The price tag breaks the bank.
Deciding on a school depends on if you need to work as soon as possible or you can wait to start working. All three schools enable you to get your RN license.
Getting into the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) depends on hospitals near you. Larger hospitals have programs to offer didactic and clinical training for new nurses, and you can be hired straight out of school. Smaller hospitals may require a year of experience before hiring you to NICU.
As you can see the path to the NICU has multiple variables. Choose a degree path. Study hard ,GPA matters. Get your license. Find hospitals that fit into plan. Start working
