Congratulations to your wife on landing her job! I know you had some frustrations there for a while.
As for schools for yourself - are you seeking a ADN or BSN? Are you looking for a private or public college? There are so many options available in the metro area. And, obviously everyone will start by telling you that the one they attended was the best...
I would definately spend the time to read through some of the other college threads here on the MN board: St. Kates, NHCC, Metrostate, etc.
I personally chose to seek an ADN, with the intention of finishing a BSN in the (near) future (when my employer will foot the bill...). This decision was in part based on the fact that two-year colleges tend to be less expensive and the one I ended up going to (North Hennepin CC) had an excellent reputation. (And more convenient to my home than say the U of M.) Most colleges around here have waiting lists, but the fact that you're are part way through a program will have an influence on the admission process for you. Some schools admit based on pre-reqs completed and GPA, others on more of a lottery basis. (I chose one based on scholastic achievement) Some are also starting to require prereqs done w/in a certain time frame (An issue for those of us w/ a previous degree more than 15 yrs. old) and some are requiring certification as a CNA. The colleges that I am aware of have fall starts only, but I realize there must be some that also have spring starts - I just don't know of them (or didn't realize they had that option.)
Good luck w/ your relocation, home finding and choosing a college that will work well for you. You are moving to an area that has many opportunites both for education and employment whan you are finished! Welcome to the (general) area. :spin:
PS - "older, male students" that I am aware of tend to be attending the community colleges, but again this is also the population that I am more aware of right now. A majority of my acquaintances/co-workers are from the ADN programs.
