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? Concorde is a bit shorter, but more expensive at 42k, and they had those staffing issues a few years ago. DSON is not yet accredited but is 'only' 35k. I plan on continuing to get my BSN so transferability is a concern too. Oh! And future job prospects is always a consideration. Any help or information would be GREATLY appreciated.
BTW, I am looking at the Nov Corcorde date or Oct for DSoN (although I haven't applied to either yet)
Thanks so much!!

Quote from ThePrestige
Both schools suck, tuition is wayyy to much, sketchy programs, I would laugh at a nurse that graduated from either program, and a few nursing managers have told me that those students are not first picks when it comes to hiring and promotion, just something to think about
wow, nice comments
I am currently in my first quarter at DSN and wanted to tell you the program is in no way sketchy. I will graduate with my BSN in Sept 2010 and was told by my current employer (The Children's Hospital) that they are definitely hiring graduates from there because they are accredited and their graduates have received a quaility education. Currently the school is working on accrediation through NLN and this last week we have had evaluators on the facilities. When I graduate I will be proud to say I went to school there.
