I've been accepted into St. Kate's pre-nursing track and have this question: Is the St. Kate's associate in nursing program really worth the extra tuition money (>$600/credit), or would it be better to take 1+ years of prereqs at comm college and apply to an ASN program at Century or Inver Hills (<$200/credit)? What benefits, if any, does St. Kate's offer?
Pertinent details: I'm an older student with young kids; BA in philosophy (4.0 GPA); math minor; no bio or chem since high school.
I'd be grateful for any advice. Thanks!
