I don't know much about prairie view, but I went to nursing school at SFA and I absolutely loved it. They just built a new nursing facility about 2 years ago. It's half lecture rooms and half sim labs, with one room completely dedicated to computer based testing. All tests are modeled after the NCLEX and the professors are all fantastic. Plus they were the first program in Texas to get a simulation mannequin that simulates labor, which was just a couple weeks ago. All in all, it's a fantastic program and you would not regret going there.
