I am planning on starting my Pediatric DNP in Fall 2013. So far I have narrowed my school choice down to the University of South Alabama and the University of Florida. I live in Orlando and will be commuting to UF if that's where I choose and doing USA all online. Of course these are two very different options but I would really love some help deciding which is best. Here's the pros and cons I see:
1. UF chooses your preceptors/clinicals where as USA has you chose your own (I see this as a pro/con for each)
2. UF has more of a prestigious name but may be more work but may prepare me better.
3. Price isn't really a huge difference
Any information on either of these programs or insight/guidance on to what would be the best decision would be great appreciated!
PS I have to decide in the next week haha but thank you for your help!
