University Fees, Books and Other Costs:
Because education costs extend beyond tuition, be sure to research and compare all costs associated with a WOC education program, not just tuition. Here is a WOC School Cost Comparison Chart, including all WEB WOC costs, to help you get started.
Financial Resources and Scholarships:
Approximately half of our learners are financially supported by their employers for tuition and expenses in the Program. Therefore, we recommend that you consider the educational scholarships that may be available from your employer as your first strategy for securing funding as you become a WOC nurse. Be sure to check out the information we’ve gathered for Hospital Administrators.
Our Program does have a payment plan that is available to all learners – it is offered through the University and is called the FACTS Payment Plan. The learner pays a $25 fee to sign up and then makes a minimum down payment. The remaining payments are due on a scheduled basis after the semester begins.
Scholarships are available through the Wound Ostomy Continence Nurses Society® (WOCN) and the Association for the Advancement of Wound Care (AAWC) to learners who have been accepted into an accredited WOC education program. Applicants are also encouraged to conduct online searches for grants that may be available through nonprofit organizations and foundations in your city and state that express an interest in providing funds for nurses, continuing education, under-served populations, rural populations, etc.
