I'm starting at UALR this semester, so there's my bias. I've heard, second hand, that Baptist tends to view nurses as much more doctor's assistants than anything else. I've heard that Baptist also talks down to their nursing students and kind of spoon feeds them information, and that it can be both patronizing and boring.
From a different person I heard that Baptist is the best option because it will prepare you better than UALR will. Baptist is also the largest nursing school
in the state. It's also more expensive.
The main reason I went with UALR was that their accelerated track only takes 18 months, whereas Baptist's fastest track is 2 years, but it can be 3. I could see either program working for different people, though, and I don't have enough experience with either one to give you any first hand information. good luck!
