I'm new here, so sorry If I'm posting in the wrong forum.
I am in Iowa at a small private university working on my BSN. Next fall I will start the actual nursing program, and right now I'm working on prereqs. I only moved back to Iowa when the economy crashed, and I'm itching to get out of here! I've heard its best to try to transfer after your first year in nursing school, so thats what I'm planning on. My question is, how hard is it to transfer into another nursing program? Obviously state schools are much more difficult to get into from out of state, so I'd like to focus on private BSN programs. I'd like something in Oregon, Washington, Minneapolis, or Chicago. Right now I'm getting excellent grades, and doing everything I possibly can to make myself competitive. What else should I be doing? Is there anything I should know about transferring, or what obsticles I will be up against?
This forum has a ton of collective knowledge and experience! Someone help! I need out of Iowa!
