i went to racc for one semester, and from my personal experience i would say go to reading hospital. the people at racc that run the nursing program
are heartless and purposely weed people out. our first semester class started with 90 and ended with 46. im not saying its impossible, but i think it would be a more pleasant experience to go to reading hospital. i transferred out to st luke's hospital (in bethlehem), which is also a diploma program, and i love it. the faculty are much more supportive, and diploma programs give you a lot more clinical time, which is nice, because you get more experience.
dont worry about "only" graduating with a diploma. it does not matter when you are getting hired, an RN is an RN. and if you plan on bridging over to a BSN, any school that has an "RN-BSN" program will take diploma RNs.. which is most places that have BSN programs. and since you already have a BA, you probably will only have to take a few more nursing classes and be done with it.
as for the schedule, i can tell you what mine was like at racc for the first semester:
Mondays- class 10-12
Tuesdays - Lab 11-3
Wednesdays - class 11-12
Thursdays and Fridays - Clinical 8-2:30
*the lab time varied depending on what group you were in. some people had lab on Wednesdays after class so they had nothing on Tuesdays, and some people had lab on Tuesday at a different time. (i forget when)
im not sure how the reading hospital schedule is.
