Accelerated BSN Program


St. John's College of Nursing has a fixed tuition rate policy for its nursing students. Tuition and fees are set each spring by the college board of directors for new students entering their first academic term.

Once tuition and fees are set, they are not subject to any increases. The college locks these rates for the length of the student'ts academic program, plus on additional academic year.
