Hi (this is a repeat of what I posted on the Maryland forum),
I've been accepted into the Accelerated BSN Program at Johns Hopkins. I need to put down a $400 deposit by March 1st (end of next week) if I want to keep my slot. If there are any graduates of Johns Hopkins BSN Program on here (either of the accelerated or the traditional option), I would appreciate hearing your impressions (positive and negative) of the program: I need your help-should I take it or not?. I have never been to Maryland and will not have an opportunity to visit the school before March 1. I have been accepted into several other BSN programs.... Feel free to PM me or to post on the public forum. Thank you in advance for your time and input.

I don't know much about Hopkins' nursing school although, generally, the hospital still has a pretty good rep. My brother in law recently traveled there for an operation because they have the best specialists for his particular problem.
However, if it does cost $25,000 a year, and assuming you'd have to shell out $50,000 for at least two years, I'd think twice about that. With the current shortage, I'm not sure it matters what school you go to, as long as it's reputable. I personally wouldn't want that much debt when I graduate. My little CC ADN program, including books, uniforms, etc. will cost only $5,000.
