OHSU or U of P? ABSN or Entry-Level Master's?

  1. I am applying for nursing school in 2008 - I already have a Bachelor's Degree so I am applying to OHSU's accelerated BSN program and U of P's alternate entry Master's (AEM UP).

    Has anyone attended either of these schools in those specific programs? I would love to be in Portland and both of the schools are appealing for different reasons.

    Also, do any of you have feedback on how effective alternate-entry graduate nursing programs are at preparing you for the "real world"? I would prefer to go ahead and get my Master's in nursing while I'm school but do you feel prepared clinically to be a nurse? I'm also applying to Pacific Lutheran's program in Tacoma and UC San Francisco, if anyone has opinions on those schools, I'd appreciate it!
