Flexible Payment Structure Options

Split Your Payments Over 24-Months (interest free)

We understand that many NPs and PAs are only just beginning their career journey—and are often doing so with a mountain of debt to consider. For that reason, we offer an affordable, interest free, monthly payment option. Once your one-time admissions fee of only $1200 is paid, your curriculum payments can be spread across 24 months, so you can receive the support and resources you need to succeed without breaking the bank.

One-Time Program Payment

For those ready to dive headfirst into their career journey, ThriveAP offers our annual program payment option. We understand that starting your career as an NP or PA can be challenging, which is why we're committed to providing a comprehensive solution. Once you pay the one-time admissions fee of $1200, the remaining curriculum cost of $5750 can be paid in full. Invest in your future with ThriveAP and take a giant leap toward your professional goals.

Leverage CME/CE Allowance

Additionally, you can use 2 years’ allotted CME/CE allowance to fund a portion of your program. Obtain the continuing education credits needed to maintain your license, develop new clinical skills, and keep up to date with the latest medical innovations and advancements.
