NYU vs. SBU?

  1. I am considering either New York University or SUNY Stony Brook. I know that NYU's College of Nursing has a 4-year undergrad bachelor's program (the first 2 being general ed. and the last 2 being nursing courses and clinicals), whereas SB's requires 2 years of general education (either at SB or another college) as prerequisites, and then applying to its nursing program for the remaining 2 years for a bachelor's.

    Which would you guys recommend as the one with a better nursing program?

    Also, does anyone know (either personally or through someone else, like a friend) which is more competitive to get into and has a tougher workload (even if it's only by a bit)?

    Sorry for asking so many questions, but I'd really appreciate any help I can get!

    Hi, I think you might get a better response if you place this on the "Pre-Nursing Stdent Forum"...I don't know much about your issue as I got a post-bachelor's "accelerated" nursing degree, Good Luck!
