Estimated Total Cost of Attendance – Net Price Calculator

Joseph F. McCloskey School of Nursing at Lehigh Valley Health Network annually publishes all tuition and fees for the current academic year. However, we think it is important for prospective students to have a realistic estimate of the total cost of the entire program, including the required first year, prerequisite coursework, so that the student can better plan for their educational experience.

Based on current prices, and assuming that the student takes and completes the entire program as scheduled, the estimated cost of the entire three-year educational experience is estimated at $45,100. See itemized breakdown below:

Pre-Program Costs
Application Fee: $50 due when student make application to the program
Enrollment Fee: $75 due when student signs their “letter of intent” and enrolls in the program

First Year Costs
Tuition and Fees for year one: $12,780 for entire year ($6360 for Fall semester and $6420 for Spring semester)

Alvernia University Textbooks and Supplies: $1,300 ($650 per semester)

Students will only pay for courses they take. If a student receives transfer credit approval for any course, they will not be charged for that course.

Second Year School of Nursing Costs
Uniforms and Supplies: $320
Nursing Textbooks: $1,400
Health Assessment and Vaccinations: $200
Criminal Background Checks and FBI Fingerprinting: $90
Second Year Tuition and Fees: $4745, Winter term - $5645, Spring term - $5645 (Total - $16,035)

Third Year Costs
Third-Year Tuition and Fees: $5645, Winter term - $5645, Spring term - $4995 (Total - $16,285

All students commute to the program daily. Students should estimate the cost of transportation to and from the program based on the location of their residence. Students should also estimate the cost of their daily living expenses such as room and board, child care expenses, etc., when calculating the total cost of an education.
