Concorde vs DSON - page 3
I have narrowed my choices down to either Concorde or DSoN for my RN. I will not need to do pre-reqs (all will be done by the end of summer), does anyone have opinions on which is better and why?... Read More

Can i ask hen you attended the LPN program at concorde? I am set to start there in August. I had heard a few bad things about their program and it had made me a little nervous. I want to go on to get my RN ( it just isn't financiallly posiible for me to right now) and was wondering if you know of any other schools accept transferred credits from concorde? Also, have you had a hard time finding a job? I would greatly appreciate feedback from anyone with any input in regards to this. Thanks in advance.
May 17, '09I am a current student at FRCC Westminster (LOVE IT! :redpinkhe)and I cannot imagine spending the kind of money it takes to go to Concorde or DSN. I am getting the same education for roughly 15000 (with living expenses) at FRCC. I know that DSN has the bachelors but for me it was not worth it. Good luck to you.
May 17, '09The price is much cheaper, but like for me in which I graduated from DSON Dec. 07... who in the HeCk wants to wait 4+ years to get into nursing school. It goes both ways. I have already paid off half my school loan w/i my first year of nursing!!

I agree with you. It may be cheaper but getting into school faster and working sooner pays off the loan. Plus, for me, getting my BSN in 21 months was a perk. I don't want to have to go back to school once I'm working as an RN.
