Just admitted to MEPN RN to NP pgm - trying to decide

  1. Hi there! I just got accepted in the MEPN (direct entry RN to Masters NP) programs and am trying to decide where to go. (These are both 3 year accelerated programs - you get an RN after the 1st year and then you have 2 more years to get a masters for nurse practitioner. It's for people who already have a bachelor's degree in another field.) One is U. of San Diego and the other is Johns Hopkins. One main difference (besides one being on the East Coast vs. West Coast) is that at the end of 13.5 months, you can get a BSN/RN at Hopkins, vs. a RN at USD. Any one have any experiences at Hopkins or USD they would be willing to share? Or does anyone have opinions of whether a regional school (USD) vs. a nationally known school (Hopkins) makes a difference to get a NP position in California afterwards? Thanks!
