Quote from Dulcedragon
I attended the U of M for their accelerated BSN. I get out in December. I am also in what they term Generic Masters which is a direct entry program only with a different name. I can either opt out and stop or continue for the MSN portion. I am not sure if this is a reputable MSN. I do not want to jeopardize my chances in the future for a job by attending a no name place for the MSN which may not be any good. I am just not sure what to do. It would be nice to continue, yet at the same time I am worn out with school and afraid at the same time of the U of M. I have talked to about 3 students from the program and some say good things and other say bad things about it.
Is it the U of M at Lowenberg?
I would think you need to have a better representation of the graduates in order to make a more informed opinion about the reputation of the university. That is JMHO.
I know that most employers are only concerned if the program is accredited and that you have passed the cert and have a license to practice.
employers will look at from where you received your MSN and if there were two candidates with identical qualifications, the more popular institution graduate would more than likely be chosen.
Honestly, I would not blame you if you stayed where you are. You should be familiar with the administration, and, maybe you can even speak with some of the instructors concerning your hesitation???????
