there are several schools in my area that offer the nursing major with the end product being a bsn. from state records, one school's annual pass rate on the nclex was 78% (elmhurst college) while another was 91% (loyola university chicago).
my work ethic throughout school, and life, is that if you work hard at something, you will achieve it. no one else is going to be around to do the work for you so you must put forth your best effort in order to get the final desired result.
with that being said, will attending one school from the other affect my qualifications as a nurse? will future employers use this type of information as a way to conclude that i am not as qualified as another applicant?
so...essentially... does the school you attend really matter?
