I am a high school student who plans on majoring in nursing and some day getting my masters in neonatology. I am somewhat overwhelmed by the number of nursing programs
out there! I would appreciate any advise on chosing a nursing (rn) program. I am looking at schools in Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Pennsylvania and Alabama. Though I'm open to other locations. I do want a school between 5000-11,000 students, friendly atmosphere, coed, on campus living, the usual college stuff! I am limited by tuition costs (tuition & room/board $10,000-11,000 per year) so I most likely will be attending a regional university. How do I begin to know which schools have the best nursing programs? Also, do potential employers really look at where I attend college as long as I've passed the national boards? Is there a web site with undergraduate nursing program rankings? Sorry about all the questions! I would really appreciate any ideas or suggestions any of you may have! Thanks alot!
