Howdy! I recently graduated from college (with a non-nursing B.A.) and am now thinking of going back to school for my BSN. I am planning on enrolling into an accelerated BSN program and have been searching high and wide for some details, such as:
*which schools are included in the top ten for nursing programs
*which accelerated BSN programs are considered the best?
*how much of a difference will it make to have a degree from a well respected school given the shortage in the nursing field and relative need of emplyers?
*is it worth spending the money to go a a top school for a BSN or would that money be better utilized later if/when I choose to get a Master's in a specialized area?
I would be quite appreciative of any and all advice from those of you who are surely so much more knowledgeable than I....
Thanks a million for your time.
