Can anyone tell me which Cuny schools
has the best Nursing Program, and which is the easiest to get into?

All of the CUNY schools offer the same basic curriculum required for NCLEX preparation. Because it has the cheapest tuition in the City, there is a tremendous competition for the 40-50 spots offered each year (about 300 applicants at minimum usually apply). Their requirements are based on GPA for four core prerequisite courses. They don't care who you are and what you have accomplished in the past. I don't know anyone who got into their program with less than a 3.85 GPA for the prerequisites.
I would recommend taking your prerequisites at CUNY (you'll save a ton of money) and then apply to a private nursing program and get a better quality learning experience.
All of the CUNY programs will accept you on a pre-nursing status to take your prerequisites, however, once they pick the students for entrance into the nursing program, you're stuck if you haven't gotten a spot somewhere else.
Good luck to you.
