I have already taken my pre-requisite classes for 2nd Bachelor Nursing programs
for both University of Detroit Mercy and Eastern Michigan University. UDM has a 12 month long program, which I prefer, because I would like to be done with school ASAP. EMU's program is 20 months long and thus each semester the work load seem lighter. I have already been accepted by EMU for Fall 2012, and now am getting a letter from UDM regarding interview to get in for January 2013 (UDM took out their September admission for 2012, and only 2012...). If I were to go with UDM, I would graduate sooner than if I were to go with EMU. Also, I have 12 months left of BI Bill for tuition, so UDM would be covered as I would have to search for scholarship
or pay out of my own pocket if I were to attend EMU.
With all mentioned above, seems like UDM would be a better choice for me doesn't it? But the main concern is-- would I be able to handle around 20 credit hour per semester in UDM? And also, how well do the students learn and perform in either nursing schools
? And do employers prefer one over another? Advices are greately appreciated, thanks!
