    Luvi congratulations on your acceptance!!! I'm also looking to live off campus as it would be much cheaper than living on campus. Are you definitely attending Edinboro or do you have other options?

    I'm a 2012 graduate of the innovative program. There is plenty of housing in the Edinboro / Erie area. Most of your clinical rotations will be in Erie, so make sure you look for apartments in Erie. You'll only have 1 rotation through Meadville, which lasts about 4 weeks. A few of our group lived in the College Park housing, which is essentially on campus. The nice part about that is for those of you who aren't planning on staying in the area to work, you don't have to commit to a lease for more than 1 semester at a time. They didn't complain about the area being too loud, so it's definitely a possibility. Here's the link to their housing: James Properties . I think a few of our group also rented through Therasse rentals (THERASSE RENTALS | Edinboro PA | 814) 734-7464 Rentals for families and students). Both of those are in Edinboro. Those who lived in Erie were from Erie, so I'm not sure about any options in Erie, but there are plenty worth exploring since Gannon University is part of Erie's population.

    I won't say too much publicly. Did you get accepted into other programs, or is Edinboro your only choice? Edinboro was my only choice because it was the only program for which I satisfied all the pre-reqs, and it was the cheapest. I can't compare the nursing department to other nursing programs since my previous degree was in something else, but I can compare Edinboro to the 2 other universities that I attended, with 1 being another PA state university and the other a private college. If you're accepted into other programs, put serious consideration into them first. As far as I'm concerned, Edinboro only served as a medium through which I obtained my BSN degree. If you're just looking for the cheapest and fastest route to your BSN, then Edinboro is the best choice. But if you put a heavy emphasis on quality, effective communication, and limited headaches from administration, look at another university. Edinboro as a whole (not just the nursing department), needs to get their act together and learn how to function as an institution of higher learning. Based on how the nursing department functions, you'd never guess nursing is a profession that values and depends on effective communication.

    I guess the major message is what are you looking for, and have you been accepted into other accelerated programs? I graduated with my BSN, passed my NCLEX (with lots of help from a review prep course), and got a hospital job. They're the cheapest, and the shortest program (3 semesters). If that's all you're looking for, they're the best choice. If you're looking for something more, consider other programs first.
