In an age of skyrocketing tuition hikes, the University of Rochester School of Nursing is going against the grain and cutting the cost of its bachelor’s degree program for registered nurses.

Responding to New York State’s landmark “BS in 10” legislation requiring future nurses to obtain a baccalaureate degree in nursing within 10 years of their initial licensure, the UR School of Nursing is dropping the overall cost of its RN to BS completion program by 18 percent. The school also offers a number of substantial scholarships to bolster the strength of the nursing workforce by easing the financial burden to be faced by registered nurses who graduate with an associate degree or nursing diploma.

Beginning with the fall 2018 semester, UR Nursing is reducing the sticker price of its RN to BS program from $1,456 to $1,200 per credit hour.
