The Nursing School Adviser, Paying for Your Nursing Education, Petersons.com:"The expense of attending college is considerable and is increasing each year at a rate faster than most other products and services. In fact, the cost of a nursing education at a public four-year college can be more than $14,000 per year, including tuition, fees, books, room and board, transportation, and miscellaneous expenses. The cost at a private college or university, at either the graduate or the undergraduate level, can be more than $30,000 per year."
