This is a great question, and I hope some people from the other end of the process (having completed an accelerated BSN program and done the job hunt thing) will weigh in.
I have no idea if any of the programs are viewed more/less favorably than others. I know the BSN is valued over an ADN or other form of RN degree, and in some hospitals, only BSNs are being hired. In general second-career nurses are seen as more mature, since they are older and have other life experience; on the other hand, people hiring new nurses really value those with lots of clinical experience, which second-career nurses may not have much of.
With regards to any individual new nurse's chances of getting hired, I think it's more important than ever for people to impress during clinical rotations. In that sense, some schools
may have more affiliations and clinical rotations in the big hospitals, so you'll have more opportunities to make those important contacts.
In the meantime, PennyS, the best suggestion I've heard for people considering going to nursing school
is to start getting clinical experience in a hospital now, like by getting work as a CNA. This will be helpful not only when you're hunting for a job, but during the nursing school application process itself. Good luck to you!
