Nursing Financial Aid

How much does a nursing degree cost?

Everyone pursuing a nursing education has differing needs, and we believe in considering your specific and personal goals in planning to finance your education and determining the cost of your nursing de-gree.

Nursing candidates seeking their degree want to know how scholarships, grants*, work-study pro-grams, self payment and federal and state loans can contribute toward paying for a nursing education. So do nurses continuing their education toward an advanced degree.

Our Financial Aid Advisors are here to help, along with online tools to help you estimate and calculate potential tuition costs and savings


Students already licensed as registered nurses can earn their BSN in Nursing in as few as 9 months starting at $12,480.*

The total cost of the RN-BSN program is impacted by your education and experience as a nurse. Students can reduce their total program length and total tuition cost through credit for academic or other experiences. Please talk to an Admissions Advisor to discuss how a tran-script evaluation can affect the cost of your program.


Master’s Degree students seeking a degree in nursing administration or nursing education can complete their degree in as little as 18 months for $17,760*.

How does financial aid impact the cost of a nursing degree?

Financial aid can help determine how much a nursing degree costs by identifying the grants, scholar-ships, loans and student employment that may help pay for college costs. Financial Aid is available for those who qualify.

Why should I apply for financial aid if I’m attending nursing school?

The federal government offers programs that can be helpful if you think you’ll need assistance paying for school. To qualify for this federal assistance, you’ll need to fill out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA. The FAFSA determines the amount of aid for which you might qualify. It is highly recommended to all nursing students to complete a FAFSA. The FAFSA application is available online and can typically be filled out in 30-45 minutes.

How does the FAFSA work?

The FAFSA site walks you through the application process and does all the math to calculate your fi-nancial need. It then generates a figure called the Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) that is used by colleges such as Colorado Technical University to create financial aid award packages which will deter-mine the amount of aid for which you may qualify. See here for more information on financial aid options and questions.
