I have been accepted into East Tennessee State University and King College, I am now trying to decide where I should go!! I know ETSU is a lot cheaper, but money luckily is not an issue. Does anyone have any info on ETSU and King's nursing programs? I want to go to the "best" one as I would like to have a job when I graduate. Do employers look at you any different if you graduated from King vs ETSU? Which program is better and why? Does anyone know the pass/fail percentage for each college? Which college prepares you more for the work force? Any information would be greatly appreciated!!
Hello, I am a graduate of King College (BSN '08) and currently a MSN/FNP student at ETSU. Both schools are wonderful, I highly recommend them both. ETSU no longer provides the MSN/FNP as it has become a DNP program. I graduate in December 2012 (very happy!) and my class is the last class to graduate with the MSN/FNP. The Tenn. RODP still has the online MSN/FNP classes, but I would recommend on ground classes. If you are wanting a DNP/FNP ETSU is the way to go. King's MSN/FNP is new, however I haven't heard anything positive or negative about the program. I do know that King has wonderful instructors, as does ETSU, and would be a great place to get your MSN/FNP. I pray that helped. God bless!
