    for anyone considering VC- here's the experience and information I have to share.

    1. VC cost more but has SUBSTANTIALLY more hands on Clinical hours than any other Assoc degree program. VC Grads have 750 clinical hours.. CLINICAL hours..
    community college Assoc programs have less than 50 CLINICAL hours. VC will give you a huge "hands on" leg up. I hear the Universities have even less clinical hours than the community colleges but I haven't been able to verify that

    I'm not sure where you got this "fact" but it's not true. The Board of Nursing sets certain requirements for clinicals. I go to a local community college and have over 300 clinical hours. And Universities don't have less hours than community college. And just keep in mind that VC has a certain reputation with hospitals and it may be hard to find a job. I know many managers hat won't hire from VC.
