What's the difference?
A new private college opened up in my area and they offer an ADN program which is where I'm headed in my Community College's School of Nursing. The difference is they are full time, pretty much guaranteed entry with a highschool diploma and have an earlier start date (within the next few months as opposed to waiting to see if I even get accepted to my school's nursing school
and starting in september or even spring of '08) and finish faster (I think a little over a year versus 2 years)
So.....sounds pretty appealing right? So how do graduates of private college's measure up against actual college ADN graduates? I'm willing to switch and start my nursing career sooner if the degree is equivalent in the world of health occupations. I have 2 kids who could really splurge on extra mommy time if I do this, but I want a degree that's worth it and meaningful.
Anyone have any insight or info on this? THANKS guys!
