I want to go back to school, I have to get my BSN, and eventually my FNP. I so far have two schools in mind, University of Phoenix and Stanislaus State. Plus side about UOP is small classrooms, seems like a learning environment a full time working mom can actually do, and is very close to my house, no commute!!!!. Down side, it is expensive private school. Plus side about Stanislaus State, less expensive, has a good reputation, but has a 45 commute from my home. I would also say it is costly but not as much as UOP, seems more intense. I have talked to some nurses who I work with who went to UOP and one who went to Stanislaus State, the one from Stanislaus State dropped out of school for some time and then returned which was a little alarming to me. The ones from UOP seems happy but are in debit up to their eyes balls with student loans, looking for opinions and thoughts Thanks!
