Hello guys, I am wanting to go to nursing school but I need some help on choosing a school. I am 27 (Male). I already have a B.S. degree in Safety management. I worked as a safety manager for two years and decided that wasn't for me.
I don't know to much about any of the schools I listed. I am going to UCA right now to get some of the pre-req's out of the way. I still have to take chem and A&P 1&2.
I got some info on baptist and it says that it is a RN program with a diploma.
What are the pros and cons of each school? Does it really make a difference out in the nursing profession if you have a BSN?
1. UCA- BSN.
2. UALR- Associate
3. Baptist- Diploma
I thought this would be the best place to post this since it is state specific.
Do hospitals/employers look down on nurses with an associate or diploma RN?
Sorry for all of the questions, I just want to make the right decision the first time around.
Thanks for all your help.
