Hi,I'm beginning my process of getting my ABSN, but am rather conflicted about where to apply. I am a NC resident but am currently living in MA and would like to gain some insight about a few of the programs I am interested in. I will be doing a lot of research, but I feel like the best info always comes from people who have first-hand experience with the program. I have specific questions/issues regarding each school so if you have any insight to those specifically, that would also be very helpful!Duke- I love the idea of how you get about 15 credits that can be applied to graduate study because I'm positive I want to go into advanced practice (probably NP), but I'm concerned about the price tag being worth it.UNC - I went there for undergrad and loved it; I am missing it way more than I ever thought I would and am proud to be attached to that family. I'm positive I would love going there but am concerned about getting in.UMass Boston - I'm fairly certain I could get in, but am concerned about the quality and reputation of the program. It may sound snobby, but it's important to me that I graduate from a school that has a reputation for generating top-notch nurses. MGH- Here I am concerned about the price and the reputation. Not having lived in MA for any of my adult life, I am completely unaware of where most of the areas nurses are educated, so I don't know which schools are the good ones.Sorry for such a long post, but I hope someone can provide some insight! Thanks in advance!
