Univ. of MD, Coppin, or Essex?

  1. Hi everyone! I got accepted to Univ. of MD and Essex's evening/weekend program, but still waiting for Coppin's decision. I've heard good things about all the programs and I need to make a decision by this weekend, even if I don't hear from Coppin.

    My goal is to become a Certified Nurse Midwife. I've read some arguments about ADN and BSN programs and I just want to be the best nurse I can be. I'd love to hear from graduates from both places and future RNs in my same position.

    Please help! Thanx in advance!

    Hi,
    Congratulations on getting so many offers. I would agree with the other posters UNLESS you want/need to start working sooner than 4 years. Two years worth of RN income can be very helpful as you go on with school.

    Thanks for the responses. I had to make a decision by May 18th at the time & I went with UMB! I start on the 27th!

    I know it seemed like a no-brainer, but I'm 33 and I had to think about my family, my job, & my bills. The thought of my life having to change so drastically for me to go to UMB was scary, but I stepped out on faith and here I am! Luckily, I have supportive family that will assist me to make my dreams come true!
