All but number 4 can be found on Google. What do you mean "reputation"? Reputation to who and in what context?
Reputation to the general public and to hospitals, clinics, and other agencies that hire nurses. What I'm really asking is which school is known for producing great nurses and which school, when hospitals, clinics, and such are hiring, looks the "best" to have on your resume!!
Yes, I am planning on attending grad school, which is another reason why I would like to attend a competitive nursing school.
Thanks for your opinion, it was definitely helpful and has helped to remind me that not everyone is as obsessed with going to the "best" school as I seem to be.
