I am currently applying to nursing school and I am having trouble deciding between URI and UCONN. I already have a BS in Animal Science from URI with a 3.7 GPA, and (from what others have told me that did the same thing) If you already have a degree from URI and are in good standing all it takes is minor paper work to be accepted into the nursing program.
My problem is the UCONN program is accelerated and I would be done in about a year, but I would not be able to work at all during that time. Would it be worth it to take it slower at URI and work as a CNA/SN on the side? Is is true that it is easier for a new nurse to find a job if they have CNA/SN experience? As far as the educational experience will I be getting the same from either university?
