I am currently a pre-nursing student but i'll be able to apply to NAU (Northern Arizona University) by next semester which is Spring 2012. The university that i have in mind since the start is UofA (University of Arizona) but I won't be able to apply until Fall of 2012. I heard UofA has more of the "reputation" in the nursing field than NAU so I am assuming that UofA is better but I also heard that nursing schools are pretty similar so it wouldn't make any different to my background after I graduate.
Is there anyone knows which school is better and should I wait till Fall 2012 to apply to both schools or should I just go ahead and apply to NAU in Spring 2012 to save me one semester waiting?
All advice is appreciated!!!
