Hello Nebraska Nurses!
I have just been accepted into Creighton University's accelerated BSN program and I currently live outside of Seattle in Washington State. I was hoping I could get some insight into the nursing job climate in Omaha, Creighton's nursing program, and any general information about Omaha.
Are new nurses getting jobs in Omaha?
What is the overall reputation of Creighton's nursing program? How well prepared are new grads from CU? Also, for any CU accelerated BSN alumni, did you have a positive experience in the program and did you feel that you learned everything you needed to in such a short program?
If you can answer any or all of my question it would be a great help!
Thanks very much, I really appreciate it!
Hey OP! I am an accelerated grad from Creighton 1987. It is a fabulous program. I'm now 24 years into a career I'd have never had thanks to CU. It is hard and takes a real focus but it is wonderful. Don't plan on working an outside job. Seriously. That led to 2 of my classmates to fail.
Omaha was a real trip for me; I'm a east coast girl..it was my first trip outside my zone. Omaha is user friendly and (at that time) dirt cheap for living compared to my home state. I continue to be fond of the town and the state all these years later.
