Which school would you think is the best to go to between
Maryville, Barnes, or umsl? I would be doing the last two years for either of the program...
I went to UMSL & loved it. You will get just as good of a nursing education at UMSL as you will at Barnes, & at a smaller cost. In my experience talking to those who hire, too, they seemed more impressed by UMSL grads than anyone else, aside from SLU. They love SLU grads, but you have that incredible cost with that, too.
So, UMSL gives you the most bang for your buck, in my opinion.
Maryville rubbed me the wrong way. Seemed really stuck-up with that whole "you need to already be taking your classes at Maryville" crap. That's just ridiculous & greedy.
You would be fine with Barnes, but it's a lot of money.
I also found the support system at UMSL to be top-notch. The advisors know their stuff & will help you get through the tough parts of the program.
