I got into University of Massachusetts and the University of Miami accelerated nursing programs
. They are both great programs. However, obviously I have to decide on one. I'm trying to weigh my pros and cons and am having a very hard time. Someone help. :-(
University of Miami has great weather. Program offers great resources to its students. However, the program is 12 months. In one semester I believe there are like 3 clinicals and 3 courses. This program is more expensive than UMass. However, program does have this scholarship where if you work for them for 3 years they pay your whole tuition, even though I don't know whether that's a good or bad thing. Because, if you get the scholarship you have to follow and maintain a 3.0GPA as well. This program offers things like sending out students to other countries for research, which seems pretty cool.
University of Massachusetts- Amherst has cold weather during the winter. The program is 17 months as opposed to 12 months. Seems like the curriculum has a better structure in their courses. Program is cheaper than University of Miami. Program also has a month off after the fall semester and University of Miami probably get like a week or 2 off, not sure on this considering it's 12 months.
I would also assume that the clinical setting in University of Miami are probably better due to the reason that it's in a city, but I could be wrong.
