    honestly, yes penn has a fantastic program, but all in all you are paying for the name. Drexel has just as good nursing program as penn and they also have the co-op which is what attracted me to drexel. you could get your nursing degree at drexel and than go to penn for the msn if you still want to go to penn at the end of all of this. theres no reason to go into so much dept if you dont have to.

    I second shuttlin's response. Go for grad school and save yourself the financial headache. There's no reason to give all that money to Penn just to jeopardize your financial future. You won't be paid more as a nurse because you went to Penn; you'll earn what Drexel grads earn too. If we were talking about Wharton, the difference in tuition would be worth it.

    I wonder if anyone can comment on the general diffculty of the nursing program at Drexel? I was accepeted for this coming fall as a transfer student and I want to know what I am getting into. I looked online at the nursing curc. and I am wondering about Anatomy 3 and Chemsitry 3, at my school Anatomy and Chemistry stop at 2 and drexel they have a 3... wth?

    Most of the science stuff like anatomy/phys, micro will be done by this summer but again if anyone can fill me in on the general diffculty of the program?
