I am applying to an ABSN program for Spring 2012. I originally decided to apply to Georgetown. However, from reading several forums, I want to have some back up plans. I have already received my first Bachelor's Degree, but I wish to obtain a degree in Nursing and eventually enter the field of midwifery.
I was hoping that someone would be able to provide me with any advice or details about the most proficient ABSN programs. I'm trying to find out what the acceptance rates of these institutions and anything that might give my application an edge over the other applicants'. I have accepted that I may be moving in order to attend these institutions, so I am also looking for any hospitals that provide scholarships or loan reimbursement programs in exchange for work after graduation.
I have looked into these institutions:
1. Georgetown University:
2. Johns Hopkins University
3. New York University
4. Marymount University
5. Duke University
6. University of Chapel Hill
I don't know if they are the best, but I have heard the most about them.
I have also looked into these scholarship/reimbursement opportunities:
Virginia Hospital Center
CampusRN/AACN Nursing Scholarship Fund
Children's Hospital of Atlanta
Washington Hospital Center
Any help would be greatly appreciated...
