Study on Cost of Nursing Education. Part 1: Cost of Basic Diploma Programs.
Rowe, Harold R.; Flitter, Hessel H.
The cost analysis method developed in a National League for Nursing-Public Health Service study was adapted to determine the cost of nursing education in the sample of 126 hospital-supported programs in this study. Some of the findings were: (1) The median gross cost per student-year for educational functions was $1,100 and the median net cost (cost remaining after income intended for educational functions was subtracted) was $900, (2) The median gross cost per student-year for noneducational functions was $1,500 and the median net cost was $1,400, and (3) The median estimated value of students' clinical experiences was $750 per student-year. Separate sections of the report deal with sample selection methodology, gross costs to partner institutions, gross costs to parent institutions and cooperating agencies, real and derived income, and general comments on the cost of the program. Appendixes include explanation of the statistical methods used, a simplified example of the close-out method of cost analysis, schedules used to record cost analyses, and a listing of participating institutes.
