I was accepted into Pellissippi State's nursing program in February and was so excited I made the cut that I pretty much forgot about the application I sent to Roane State until I recently checked my R.S. email and learned I was accepted there as well. I have a bachelor's from UT and took all of my science prereqs at Pellissippi State. I feel established with Pellissippi State knowing their campuses etc, but now that I have learned that I have been accepted to Roane State's program I'm not as sure about which program to attend as I thought I was. I'm a little nervous about starting all over at a new college and new campuses, but I'm wondering if going to Roane State's nursing program might be more beneficial since they are a well established and long running program versus Pellissippi's nursing which will only begin its second year in the fall. Just looking for others' opinions on either program and/or which you did or would choose?

Lindsay please do not judge the nursing program because of other administrative offices. Financial aid is the WORST! They never answer the phone, they never have their stuff together, you are responsible for your own thing. They have mixed me up with another girl with my name numerous times and dropped me from classes, they have been a nightmare. You almost always have to go in, in person. But the nursing staff and their office staff are amazing! My teachers have been wonderful, spent many hours with them outside of class because I didnt understand something or needed to practice something in lab. Mrs. ****** in lab is wonderful! She was always willing to help me out. They all have high expectations, but I wouldnt have it any other way. I know when I graduate I will be a good nurse!! So over look the others and give the nursing teachers/staff a chance
