    Again, assuming you are basing your reply on what you've heard or read, those schools are highly ranked for their graduate programs. There are no rankings for undergraduate/pre-licensure programs. Any program that is recommended will purely be based on anecdotal evidence, recruiter hype and personal opinion. Pick a few places you'd like to live and go from there with your research.

    Univ of WA and Seattle University both have excellent nursing programs if you want to live in Seattle. UW is in a nicer neighborhood, if you care about that. It's also a pretty large university. Seattle U is a bit more intimate. I went to HS in Seattle and have friends who went to both programs. I've heard only great things about both.

    I have heard that a lot of employers and if you continue your education past a RN, in future graduate programs, really like when you went to a school that is affiliated with a teaching hospital. Most often, teaching hospitals are those that are University hospitals. So If you went to U of WA, since they have a U of WA Medical Center, that would be an example of a teaching hospital.
