I am currently in the process of preparing for my post-baccalaureate BSN in Nursing and I am really interested in attending either Simmons, Northeastern, MGH, RIC, Regis, or Umass Boston. I am not sure which is better at preparing for clinical over the other (however, if I had to guess, I would assume it to be Northeastern). My main question(s) are 1. Can a new grad be hired in a critical care role after certification? 2. Which school regardless of cost is most helpful in preparing you for various roles? 3. Which offers the best financial aide package? Lastly, with the shortage of jobs is it likely for a new grad to be hired right out of school? If not, what are some recommendations to help you retrieve a position in the hospital and in the role of a critical care nurse?
Thanks in advance everyone,
