I've been accepted by ACE and I'm trying to decide if, in terms of hospital employment, it's worth it to apply to FACT or UPenn. FACT was my first choice (only because Penn is so expensive and I doubt I'll receive financial aid) until I recently spoke to a former manager of mine. She's a retired nurse volunteering at a clinic in Trenton. Recently she started working with a FACT grad who, one year out, still hasn't found a good job (I know that's relative concept, but we've all heard the nursing job market in Philly is pretty bad). Given the tight market, this could be the case for all new BSNs in the Philly area, but I'm wondering if anyone knows whether or not any of these programs offer an advantage over the other in terms of getting jobs.
