Here are my choices:
1. Very prominent School. Tuition is $10000 per semester. I would perform clinicals at 2 of the hospitals I would be interested in working at. One is a children's (with my goal of being in the nicu) The other is a very good hospital as well. They say they offer extensive scholarships
and grants. I only have $6000 out in loans currently. There Nclex pass rate is 93%.
2. School number 2. Said to just be coming off probation. They had a nclex pass rate of 76% currently it is %90. They just finished an accredidation of some sort, I am not sure for what. Tuition there is abou $3000 a semster.
My main question is: Looking at the tuition difference here, how do I make sure that I am getting that much better of an education from the more expensive school that school #2. Also, if I am doing clinicals at the hosp I am interested in working at, does that make a diff in the decision.
Point me in the right direction here people. DH is leaning towards the more expensive school. He wants me to have the best education offered. Also, he feels it a great advatage that they offer clinicals where I am eventually hoping to work. One more thing, both of the hospitals offer $5000 per semester for every 12 months sign on.
Thanks a mill guys!
