I live right on the RI border and started my pre-reqs at massasoit, wondering if I should change to CCRI come January?
Any pros/cons for either school?
BTW, CCRI would be a bit closer for me!
Thanks in advance

CCRI is in the process of dissolving their wait list. CCRI's facilities are outdated, extreme lack of support services (RI really butcher's its community college budgets). The campus police only carry handcuffs at CCRI. The Massosoit Campus Police carry something called fire arms and they are the only community college police department in MA to carry guns.
On topic, Massosoit has a weekend RN Program. CCRI your stuck with days. Also at this point Massosoit is the only College that I can think of that has an alternative to day time nursing program on the weekends (that is for people learning to become RNs, not BSN and MSN who are allready RNs). Besides Mass Bay which just is a poorly managed Nursing Program that did have a night RN Program, and currently has its admission frozen.
I'd go to massosoit if I were you.
Nothing wrong with the LPN route. Its a good start.
If you want totally clueless staff members and people who have no idea what they are doing, then go to CCRI.
EDIT: CCRI does have a night nursing program. However, like I said support services are very lacking especially with disability services. They have one lady who works there for everything. Very mean lady too if she is still there. My g/f hated that place.
