Three Ways You Can Pay for Your RN to BSN Degree

If you’re considering going back to school to earn your RN to BSN degree, it’s likely that one of the biggest concerns you have is figuring out a way to pay the cost of tuition. You’re not alone. Most students face a similar challenge. The good news is that there are a number of options you can explore to make going back to school possible.

  1. Take Advantage of Reimbursement Programs from Your Employer

    If you're currently employed, you may be able to get some help paying for school from your employer. Some companies will help their staff pay for their RN to BSN degree through tuition reimbursement or provide some other type of assistance. Reach out to your employer and ask if they offer programs for individuals who want to advance their education.

  2. Search for Scholarships

    There are a number of scholarships and loans available to those interested in continuing their education. Take time to research options you may qualify for. A great place to start is the U.S. Department of Labor's free scholarship search tool.

  3. Look into Monthly Payments

    You may also find that the option of paying monthly installments makes it easier to manage the cost of tuition. Ashworth College's tuition calculator allows you to estimate your monthly payment rate based on what you can afford and the cost of your program.

    If you put in the time and research, you will find the option that's right for you. Going back to school can help you realize your potential, expand your career and potentially earn more. Consider it an investment your future—one that is full of possibilities.
