I'm trying to decide what nursing program to go into this coming fall 2014. I have a bachelor's in another discipline (I'm 24) and I'm currently finished prerequisites at a community college. I applied to nursing programs
/schools this past December and I'm starting to hear back from some of them.
I haven't heard back from Saint Anthony College of Nursing in Rockford, IL, but really loved it when I visited the open house this past fall. I don't know if I'm accepted yet (find out in March), but I wanted to see if anyone had gone through the program recently or heard of anything about the program in general.
Whether it's a very difficult program compared to others, if the teachers are willing to put in the extra time and enthusiastic about what they do. The support system for students in general. How are the clinicals. Even the graduation rate (retention through out program) would be helpful if you know.
Thank you so much!!!!!! It's appreciated!!

I know this may be slightly off topic but do any of you know if they have any restrictions on stethoscopes you can use for clinicals (tubing color mostly). I want to order mine before classes start but want to be entirely sure. I searched everywhere in the student handbook and didn't see anything mentioning it.
