Hi, I was wondering if anyone has gone to Mercy College, I am looking at going there b/c it sounds like its really hard to get into DMACC, I dont know if Grandview is as hard. And my mom has worked at Mercy (not as a nurse) for 15 yrs and they have a tuition discount for family program, I have also heard if you sign a contract to work for Mercy for so long you can get school paid for. Does anyone know anything about this? Is it a good idea? Any recommendations on what I should do? I appreciate any help you could give.

Grand View College is the way to if you'd like to go to a school that skips the 2 year degree and goes straight to the BSN. While Mercy is a more focused program, Grand View is along the lines of the more common collegiate experience. Just depends on what you are looking for.
GVC is more expensive, but I've been able to get around that with scholarships and grants.
The three Des Moines area schools...DMACC, GVC, and Mercy will all have their pros and cons, but they will all make you a competent nurse. I would just avoid any of the programs that aren't ran by colleges or universities. (ie, the Kaplan, Excelcior type schools).
