*This is only an estimate, using general program
pricing. Your price may be higher or lower depending on
your specialization, transfer credits, tuition discounts, and (in
FlexPath) the speed at which you move through the program. Fees,
including application fees and resource kits, are not included in
this estimate. The GuidedPath prices show the tuition you would pay
if you brought in the average number of transfer credits or the
maximum allowed transfer credits. The FlexPath prices show the
tuition you would pay if you brought in an average number of
transfer credits and you moved at the speed of a typical FlexPath
student or as quickly as the fastest FlexPath students (90th
percentile). New or recently revised programs base their estimate on
comparable programs. Military Tuition Assistance (TA) is not
available for FlexPath.
Speak with an enrollment counselor to get a personalized cost estimate for what you can expect to pay.
“I chose FlexPath because it worked around my work schedule. The cost was another factor. The fact that you can take as many courses as you can and pay a flat fee is awesome.”*

positions may prefer or even require previous experience, licensure,
certifications, and/or other designations along with a degree. Because
many factors determine what position an individual may attain, Capella
cannot guarantee that a graduate will secure any specific job title, a
promotion, salary increase, or other career outcome. We encourage you
to research requirements for your job target and career goals.
While the nursing education field offers a variety of career paths and focus areas, here are some of the more common paths:
Lead health care toward the future by influencing and leading the next generation of nursing students to the pinnacle of patient care.
Prepare for a faculty role in a land-based or online college or university.
Facilitate learning and nurse development by teaching the skills and knowledge needed to provide the best possible care to patients.
Prepare for clinical nurse educator roles in hospitals or in other health care facilities where you can help nurses get the most out of their training.
Oversee faculty members and instructors, as well as collaborate in curriculum design, development, and revision of nursing curricula.
Prepare for a director of education role in a land-based or online college or university.
Multiple factors, including prior experience, geography, and degree field, affect career outcomes, and Capella does not guarantee a job, promotion, salary increase, or other career growth.
