    I just got a letter from Simmons (via Fedex) with a huge merit scholarship... which really throws a wrench in my plans since I thought I had my mind made up. They want a deposit by February 26th, which is so soon!

    I am interested in being a pediatric NP but working in a hospital setting, not primary care.
    Not many schools (except UPENN, where I didn't get in) have specific pediatric acute care NP programs so I applied for pediatrics for some schools (MGH, BC, Regis) and acute care for some (Yale, Johns Hopkins, Vanderbilt, Northeastern, UMass Worcester). I'm in to MGH, was told "probably" for Yale, and am waiting on the rest. Is anyone in the same boat as me or have suggestions as to the best schools for what I'm going for?? Any thoughts would be appreciated!

    What are everyone's thoughts about the rankings? Does the ranking of the program really matter?????

    If it's between 9 and 11, probably not. If it's between 2 and 50, it probably does. A degree is a degree, but the name recognition will help get you jobs, and the actual education you get will be invaluable. Rankings don't mean everything, but they do mean something, and generally speaking, I think you can assume you'll get a better education and thus be a better prepared NP at a higher ranked school vs. a lower ranked school - which isn't to say you'll get a bad education at the last-ranked FNP school in the country, necessarily, but the opportunities and resources available to you at the #1 are unparalleled.

    I think top 20 is pretty interchangeable (and some are tied so like Duke says #7 but it's really like #5 if you count the tied ones as one set). Columbia is #21 but it's a pretty good school (and again counting tied ones as a set it's actually ranked higher). So the difference between #3 and #15 isn't that large. Both would be good schools.
