Nursing Estimated Cost

These costs are not definite, but only estimates and are subject to change at any time. Book costs are for new textbooks. Currently, there is a book buy back procedure and some used textbooks may be available to nursing students.

Expenses for food, housing and transportation are not included in this listing. However, Fort Scott Community College does have a dorm and meals available for student use. Transportation to and from clinical facilities is the responsibility of the student. Often times, a car pool is available. Each student is required to have a physical examination and current immunizations prior to attending nursing classes. This will be the responsibility of the student. This listing is based on full-time enrollment.
