- Dec 2, '12 by Mie'sWayThis is to anyone who would like to answer charity or LSU, why and why not?
- Dec 3, '12 by KristenNolaI got accepted to LSU and will be calling Charity soon to give up my placement. I chose LSU because in the end it's a BSN program and I heard there were some hospitals that would only accept BSN degrees. However, there is a bridge program that you can do. I just want to get it done and over with. Plus, I wanna further my education to get a masters so that is ultimately why I chose LSU. I toured both schools and both were great facilities. Either school is a great choice.
- @kristennola a lot of people say that about hospitals not accepting ASN but I know a few ppl that have their ASN and have jobs in the hospital ... But I honestly want to experience Charity because of the hands on experience they offer. i want to have an all around experience with actually working in the hospital not just learning the theory of the hospital . i plan to Go to LSu to further my education with my BSN / MSN
- I need to decide which school I'm going to soon because I know a lot of students are waiting to receive letters. I'm very thankful and blessed to have an option to choose between both schools
- Dec 3, '12 by KristenNolaI think LSU has the same amount of clinical hands on experience. Charity is a 2 year program and starts their clinicals right away. LSU is a 3 year program and starts their clinicals 2nd semester, so in the end they both have the same amount of hands on experience. Sorry if I made your decision harder.
- @kristennola lol you totally did ...my mind is more towards charity because I would have the opportunity to work as a RN after I finish and still get my BSN in a year which would ultimately equal three yrs... I think I need to just stop worrying myself and go for it ... I want to experience both schools so that's why I'm having a hard time deciding. I guess I just answered my question in so many words .
- Dec 4, '12 by KristenNolaYes, I considered the same option you were. I was planning on attending Charity but really my only push to choose LSU was the cadaver lab. Some people think that's weird but I think it would be interesting. But I was in the same boat, I was like the bridge program is still three years I may as well start working sooner. It sounds like you would be happier with Charity to start working sooner.
- Dec 5, '12 by heather0208I chose charity because it was the fastest way for me to begin working as an RN and would take the same amount of time if I were to have chosen LSU. I fully plan on getting my BSN after graduation ASAP! Side note, I know of someone who got her ADN from Charity and after working at a local hospital for a certain period of time, they have agreed to pay her way for LSU's bridge program to BSN
