Sorry old thread but I thought I would reply anyways ... CSU San Marcos and SMU are highly regarded. I I hear positive things from the nurses on the floor at my clinicals about CSUSM. I also heard that Palomar Medical Center (magnet hospital) mostly hires CSUSM and Palomar College graduates.
SMU is well-regarded in the bay area and Sacramento area. I haven't heard much about National but I've seen their students around at the hospitals I have clinicals from time to time. I like their blue uniforms but I haven't heard anything about the quality of their program - that's not to say that it's a good or bad program.
I have heard nothing but bad things about WCU.
