I'm in the North NJ. I'm willing to relocate in the country for good schooling if there is a need.
Because when I graduated, I had such a hard time finding a job. And because I only have an ASN, I could not get into a hospital after several years working at a nursing home. But I don't want to get stuck in nursing homes forever.
I think I'd better get serious this time and go to a big-named school if I can get into. But seems these big-name schools
close by, like Columbia, John Hopkins, Yale, all either have 2nd degree accelerated BSN or BS-MSN entry to practice. In my case, though I have a BS and MS degree in a non-nursing field, but I already have RN license, and I don't want to go to MSN at this time. Not so many to look for for me.
