In Search of Nursing Schools......

  1. Hi All!!

    I'm a very recent transplant to Albuquerque from Houston and am in search of ALL nursing schools either via community college, technical institutes and universities.

    I have a bachelor's in Finance, but cannot stand corporate and have always wanted to do nursing. Coming from Houston, I'm use to having MANY nursing schools at the tip of my fingers, however, the timing was all wrong for me to apply to the program as I found out I was pregnant and had a baby.

    Now that I'm here in ABQ and my little one is going to be 1 yr, I feel I am ready.

    One of my clients back in Houston (who is now a hospital administrator) said nursing programs are super difficult to get into and it's best to try ALL avenues to get into nursing school if need be. He was wait listed and rejected many times over so he decided to get his LVN, then RN, then finished with rest of the classes and received a BSRN and now he has completed his masters and is now a hospital administrator. Good for him!!!! He had to take the back route, but made it and is doing well!!

    I'm familiar with UNM's accelerated route, however, I am keeping all of my options open.

    So, with this said, can you please make a list of nursing schools in Albuquerque ONLY..... those offering LVN, RN (associates) and BSRN??

    Your help is greatly appreciated!
