I live in Indiana and have been accepted for the RN program at Vincennes University and Ivy Tech Community College. I have heard many good things about both schools. The RN program is said to be looked highly at Ivy Tech but I'm just worried that because it's a community college hospitals will pick someone from a University over me. I can do either, but Ivy Tech is close to my moms house, cheaper, and by my place of work. Where as VU is 2 hrs away and more than likely I would have to move and get a job down there. I am more than willing to do it if will benefit me job wise. But I as just wondering if anyone had a personal experience like this and what you did, and how it turned out.

If you have been accepted in a BSN program, you should get the BSN and get it over with.

I agree with ^^^. Plus u have to weigh the pros and cons...how much TIME do u have to bank on finding a job and moving b4 u make a decision...this type of decision shouldn't be made quickly. Hope u find a resolution.

vu is not bsn & my sister went there & hated it.. more than likely bsn will be chosen over you for jobs but if that is not an option then ivy tech is great!
