One way that you can really save some hard earned cash is to go to an Online school. You don't have to spend money on gas, hours commuting to and from or even buy new clothes to be presentable in class. To me, that is a great savings. When I am done with my nursing class, I am thinking about taking one of the online BSN programs so that I can save money and my sanity as well since I have small children that never want to cooperate with mom's schedule. I can't wait until I can just take online classes!
