Hi there, I am a high school junior and I am interested in getting a BSN. I saw the NCLEX pass rates for all of the CA schools, and I found that a lot of the CSU's have the highest NCLEX pass rates out of all the schools. Is it a good idea to base a nursing school's quality off its pass rates? I am trying to visit some colleges, but I am turned off by the fact that the CSU system is making it so it is harder to enroll in classes. Should I look towards the UC's or private schools?
Another thing you may want to consider is where the nursing school has you do your clinical rotations. There's a world of a difference between a university medical center vs. a community hospital (exaggerating a bit but still).
