(1) The CON Undergraduate Standardized Patient Fee is increasing by $10 as more simulations with standardized patients have continued to increase over the last two years to strengthen the students’ learning experience.  This increase will support additional costs.

(2) The College of Nursing Graduate Program Fee is a generic fee that replaced the Advance Health Assessment fee previously charged to graduate students enrolled in the Advanced Health Assessment course.  The $300 fee is to be spread across the program ($50/semester for 6 semesters).  Additionally, $25 is included in this fee to cover the cost of Typhon, a nurse practitioner student tracking software.  This fee is charged every fall and spring semester to students enrolled in graduate programs.

(3) The College of Nursing Progression Test fee includes the cost of ATI, ExamSoft, and Nursing Central for the BSN students.  The fee should be charged every fall and spring to students enrolled in the BSN program and every fall, spring and summer for students enrolled in the Accelerated BSN program.  Cost for ATI has increased and Hurst Next is being added as a new product to prepare students for the Next GEN NCLEX Exam.

(4) Although not a fee, this deposit is due upon acceptance, as a reservation of enrollment prior to actual registration. It is non-refundable, but will be applied to the first semester tuition if the applicant enrolls within a year.

(5) The Anesthesia Professional Liability Insurance/Student Liability Insurance is provided to students only by the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists (AANA).  The needed liability insurance for CRNAs is more comprehensive in the variety of anesthetizing locations in which they will gain clinical experiences.

(6) The CRNA Progression Fee includes the cost on AANA/NBCRNA Duel Enrollment, SEE Exam and Prodigy Anesthesia.  All components are either required and/or will enhance performance with uniquely tailored assignments geared towards ensuring successful completion of the program.
