I mean, I know LLU is a lot more expensive than CSUSB but is the extra investment worth it in the long run? Like do LLU's nursing students get chosen for a job before CSUSB's nursing students?? If anyone can get back to me, I will really appreciate it. THANK YOU!!!!!!! : ))

- Sep 21, '12 by alexis87Hi, I am a student at llu right now, so my views may be a bit biased but I love my school so much. The cost is more but it is so worth it, and they give out lots of scholarships to help ease the cost. Since llu also has many hospitals we get the best clinicals (in the llu hospital system), and we never have clinicals on the weekends or friday evenings. We can also have clinicals at the va or arrowhead too, which is nice. Once you get to your final quarter you get to choose a department to work in as a student and most people get hired in that department afterward. It is nice because you get to know the hospital and have three years to make a great impression there for a future job. We also get to use the simulation lab at the centennial complex which is great for learning. The faculty really care about the students including their emotional and spiritual lives. And since they know that we are paying allot and are busy tired students, they feed us lunch almost once a week there and there are also lots of free dinners too! I feel like I made the right choice at my school but there are lots of options to weigh out for what school is right for you. In the end a bachelors is the same no matter what school you went to, and it is a personal choices for what works best for your life. If you have any mor questions about my school feel free to ask, I know the choice is hard so I hope I can be of some help!
- Sep 21, '12 by alexis87Oh and I forgot to mention, that at llu you are guaranteed the classes you need no matter what, which is such a relief because my whole prerequisite time was spent trying and praying that I get my classes, so it is really nice not to have to worry about that again!
- Sep 25, '12 by hilda_saldanawow, thank you so much for replying. THANK YOU VERY, VERY MUCH. It's so nice how you can get hired right after the final quarter. I did not know that. I did not know that they gave out a lot of scholarships. Wow, thank you so much. Do you know if they look at your overall GPA? Or is it just the prerequisite GPA? : ))))
- Sep 26, '12 by alexis87Glad I could help! I just want to clarify that we are not guaranteed a job after graduation, there has to be an opening on that floor, and we still have to apply and interview, but it helps that we have done our clinicals and practicum at llu, and that we are familiar with the staff and system there, so that's how many students get hired. Plus they have awesome new grad residencies you can apply to also to work on nicu, or pediatric icu and many more (you don't have to be a llu student to apply to these). I think that they look only at your prerequisite GPA, but I am not 100% sure. If you are interested in the program I would recommend stopping by the school and setting up a meeting, they are super helpful and can guide you through your prerequisite course plan. Let me know if you have any more questions and ill try and help as much a possible!
