ABSN in Reno or Portland?


Hi everyone,

I am probably getting a divorce and will be moving to live with family in either Reno or Portland. I have a few prereqs to go before I can apply to an ABSN program. I am having a hard time choosing where to go. I have one daughter (3 years old) and am hoping to get into the workforce as fast as possible. I would have more babysitter options in Portland but my sister is a nurse in Reno and would have her there to help with school if I lived there.

I have been looking at: OHSU & Concordia's ABSN as well as University of Nevada/Reno's ABSN. Anyone have insight on which is the easiest to get into? Also insight into new grad programs in either location? I hope to ultimately work in the NICU.

Thank you!
