I was previously pre-PA, and just recently switched to pre-nursing, and I will be applying to direct entry programs, so i am a little new to this. My question is, how did you decide which schools to apply to? Was it location? a specific specialty that the university offered? Length of the program? Rank of the school? The job placement percentage of new grads?
I live in california, and I was going to apply to Western University of Health sciences, but I saw on some site that they were ranked really low in nursing. Does it even matter which program you get into as long as you pass your boards? Should I be picky about which program I apply to since my stats aren't that great (3.2 overall GPA, 1 yr experience as an EMT)? Any advice would be helpful
