Moved to Distance Learning for Nursing forum for more response.
Well, we have a school that pumps sonographers out like a pool draining water. Then they have to move away to find a position because we live in a small town. There are just not many jobs for them. I know really the same is for nursing, but you are more apt to get a nursing job than a sonography . Just my two cents.
I had a few friends that were trying to get in there, I believe they have a nurse residency program after you graduate. My advice is go through the ODU ABSN, its about 1/4 the cost of sentara, and in a shorter time frame. I think ODU may also have a direct entry MSN program for people with previous BAs in areas other than nursing, but I'm not completely sure on that. I have a friend who works for Sentara but she went to MCI and now she is trying to get her BSN through sentara as well.
I don't know if you will find many sonography graduates on a nursing forum. But you might not only want to explain where Tidewater CC is but you could also try posting in the applicable state forum under "region" instead of the general nursing forum.
