Loma Linda or rcc?

  1. 0
    Hello! I am currently on my last semester for taking pre reqs for the RN associate program at my community college(rcc). I am interested in Loma Linda's BSN program primarily because of Its excellent reputation and also because it's only 40mins for where I live in San jacinto. However, because Its a private university, i was wondering if I can receive financial aid to cover all of my tuition? I know that if I go to a cal state or Uc, I will get covered. Otherwise if I would have to get loans, I'm probably thinking of staying at RCC and getting my ASN. Any feedback would be greatly appericated! thank you!

    BSN is the path I would go if I could do it again. ASN is not what it use to be and the hospitals want the BSN behind your name.

    Thank you. I will probably stay at RCC for because I have a great chance of getting in, and it's a lot cheaper

    I am at RCC right now and we have a great program!!!! I will be honest though many hospitals want you to have your BSN. The great thing with RCC is they have the relationship with CSU-Fullerton. And also there are tons of different RN-BSN programs that will get you through much cheaper than LLU. I would be lying if I said that if you got into LLU you shouldn't go. They are a very reputable university! Also if you want to be in the Peds realm I say LLU!

    And you can always go the ADN to BSN route later... Save yourself some money
