UCD Raises Tuition for PA but not for NP?

Recommended Posts

I just noticed that UC Davis (one of the only PUBLIC schools in CA) raised their prices for their PA program to 110k per year for tuition only for students beginning 2014!!!

On their website it says NP's only have to pay $25,454 for in-state and $37,699 yearly for out of state.

I thought this was one of the schools that taught PAs and NPs together? Why is there such a large tuition gap?

Can someone in the program/entering the program explain the reasoning behind this or confirm that I am reading their website correctly because this seems outrageous...

I can confirm the new tuition cost of the PA program. The reason why? That I am unaware of as I just found out about the tuition difference a few days ago. A few of us are curious as to why and plan on asking when we get a chance. Not much time otherwise. :)

Can anyone explain to me what benefits UC Davis gives to IN-STATE applicants?  They just increased their tuition 100% and it's now the same for in-state and out (110,000?!), so I'm completely confused as to how this public school is helping California applicants.  This is ridiculous

it gives preference to in state residents if I am not mistaken.

The reason that UC Davis tuition is more for PA students is that the program is run by the School of Nursing. This results in Nurse Practitioner students receiving special grants because in order to be a Nurse Practitioner, you must current be a Registered Nurse. These benefits are not available to Physician Assistant students. Unfortunately, there is quite a bit of disparity amongst how funding is utilized on the PA students vs the NP students.
