Just my opinion as a working mom:
70 miles is too far to commute for any purpose. Not for work. Not for school. I know too many people who have fallen asleep at the wheel and suffered serious accidents as a result of lengthy commutes. Depending upon where you live, weather may also be a factor. You need to be close enough to school to participate freely in group work, preparation for clinicals, etc., so this one would be immediately off my list.
As for the other two, how do they compare cost wise and quality wise? NCLEX passing rates can be deceiving if the school "weeds out" students by means of HESI exams every semester or year, or requires students to pass an exit HESI before being allowed to graduate. Make sure your choice of school does not hold your degree and NCLEX eligibility hostage over an exit HESI exam. If you don't know what this means, research it. It is a big issue for some nursing students.
What will your cost at each school be? How do you plan to pay for your education? I would seriously consider the option that will leave you with the least amount of debt upon graduation. Starting out your career with tens of thousands of dollars in loans to pay off is daunting, and should be avoided or minimized to the extent possible.
Finally, you can go to a top notch school and get a lousy education, and you can go to a so-so school and get a stellar education. The quality and outcome of your college education is largely up to you. That doesn't mean that you should knowingly choose
a second-rate program, but nor do you have to go to Harvard to be well educated and well prepared for your profession. Ask to spend a few days at both programs. Attend some lectures. Meet students. Ask them about their likes and dislikes. Students love to talk about their programs and will give you honest feedback. Research the hospitals and agencies that the programs utilize for clinical. Ask the staff nurses there what they think of the nursing programs
you are considering. They may be able to give a good comparison of both programs, if both programs use some of the same clinical sites.
Good luck to you!
