Going to college is expensive. But not all students know how much it costs to study at Helene Fuld School of Nursing. This can be a problem because if you don’t know how much your degree will cost and what expenses are involved, you could end up graduating with a lot of debt.
That’s why we’ve put together this list of tuition and other expenses that every student should be aware of before entering the program:
Tuition is $38,000 per year and is paid in monthly installments. Tuition is due on the first day of each month and can be paid online with a credit card or debit card.

Health and Accident Insurance
When you study at Helene Fuld School of Nursing, you will be automatically enrolled in the school’s health and accident insurance plan. The plan includes coverage for medical expenses before and during your stay at the university.
This means that if you are hospitalized due to an illness or injury while studying with us, the cost of your treatment—including medication—will be covered by our insurance policy. If you require surgery, our coverage will cover all costs associated with surgery including hospitalization, anesthesia, and post-operative care.
In addition to providing medical coverage for any accidental injuries sustained during classes or on campus grounds, this policy also includes coverage for mental health services such as psychotherapy sessions or psychiatric medications prescribed by a licensed professional. It also covers emergency room visits resulting from accidents on public transportation like taxis and buses (but not subway trains).
Students must purchase a nursing uniform for each clinical rotation. The cost of the uniform ranges from $65 to $85 and includes scrubs, a lab coat, and shoes.
What does it look like?
Each hospital has its particular uniform requirements; however, they are all similar. The most basic ones include dark-colored pants and tops with white collars or vests. You might also be required to wear a scrub cap during your clinical rotations. If you’re going into an intensive care unit (ICU) or another high-risk area where contact with bodily fluids is likely to occur, you may need additional protective equipment such as gloves and masks or face shields depending on hospital policy.

Financial Aid (FAFSA)
You may be eligible for financial aid, which is money that can be used to help pay for your education. To receive financial aid, you must fill out a FAFSA form and then submit it to the school. Students who qualify will have their information sent to our office, where we will review it with other documentation and determine if they are eligible for any sort of financial aid.
If students are eligible, they will receive notification from our office about how much money is available for their use—this could include paying tuition or books, a monthly stipend for housing, and food costs during clinical rotations (which occur both in-state as well as out-of-state), or even an hourly wage during clinical rotations. We do not guarantee that all applicants will receive some type of financial assistance; however, we do strive hard every year so that every student who wants help gets it if possible!
You will need the following books for each semester:
- Nursing Fundamentals: $80
- Med-Surg with Q & A: $50
- Pharmacology for Nurses: $100
- Microbiology and Immunology for Nurses: $50
You can get used copies of most textbooks online through sites like Amazon, eBay, or Half.com. The prices range from 50% to 70% off the original price of a new book (usually around $150).
You can also purchase them on the secondary market at local colleges or libraries during end-of-semester sales or when they’re no longer needed by students.
The best way is probably just asking other people if they’re willing to sell their old texts because then you’ll know exactly what you’re getting!
If buying used isn’t an option, then purchasing digital copies is another great way to save some money in college without sacrificing too much quality or usefulness in your education process (although this may not work well if your professor requires physical textbooks).
For example, there are many websites where students can rent textbooks from other users who bought them but didn’t need them anymore; some even include free shipping so there’s no additional cost at all!
Student Activities Fee
The Student Activities Fee is a mandatory fee that all students pay each semester. The money you pay goes towards funding student organizations, publications, leadership development programs, and more.
Helene Fuld School of Nursing has many student organizations for nursing students to join. These include Alpha Epsilon Delta (AED), the student chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International; the Nursing Society for Social Responsibility (NS4S); the Pre-Nursing Club; and others. In addition to regular meetings, most groups organize community service activities or cultural events such as mixers with other schools’ nursing students or movie nights at local theaters.
Many Helene Fuld School of Nursing clubs are competing in the American Nurses Association’s Student Nurse Association (SNSA) competition this year!

Miscellaneous fees, also called student services and administrative fees, are non-tuition expenses. They include:
- Student health insurance
- Transcripts and diploma requests
- Parking permits (if you drive to school)
- The program fee for certain courses (examples: clinical education or research projects)
If you’re worried about these costs, look into scholarship and grant opportunities. You may be eligible for a grant that covers some of your miscellaneous fees or tuition!
