BSN Programs associated with Teaching Hospitals

Hello,

I am currently in the process of researching BSN programs. Let the fun times begin!

At first, I considered the basics like NCLEX pass rates, location, price. Now, after going over it with nurses that I work with in the Emergency Department, I am beginning to consider other factors:

-Is the program associated with a medical center? 

-AND is the program associated with a medical center that is a teaching hospital? 

-Are there opportunities to work in research?

So far I've gathered that all of this is possible at U of Michigan. Does anybody know of other BSN programs like this? 

Thank you in advance for your help! Stay safe everybody! 

 

-Hunter

The UCs in California: UC San Francisco, UCLA, UC Davis, UC San Diego

Not sure about the research part (if that is part of the BSN curriculum), but all UC schools are research-based.

I think UC Irvine and UC Riverside also have nursing - BSN.   

Just check out the University of California schools because the UC system has always been geared toward research. 

The CSU system schools also have many BSN nursing programs, but do not have their own teaching hospital attached/linked with them.  CSUs are geared toward teaching you how to do the job and getting you ready for the working world.

Word of warning:  ALL California schools are extremely competitive.  Even the ADN/ASN ones. 

Good luck!

@Mergirlc I followed up on those programs yesterday. The UCs that offer a BSN are UCLA and UC Irvine. I'll most likely apply for those programs in the fall. 

Good points about the CSUs. I'm thinking more long-term (e.g., clinicals, research, network) so the CSUs are not going to be my top choices. 

Since nursing has such a good ROI and the opportunities are endless to a lifetime, I'm confident at looking into programs like

-Univ of Wisconsin

-Georgetown

-Univ of Penn

-Duke

-Univ of Michigan

But this list is not complete, there are programs out there that have what I want--I just don't know about them yet. 

Thank you again! God bless and stay safe 🙂

Not to derail your thread, but may I ask what benefits you see to attending a BSN program associated a teaching hospital? Regardless, you will be getting clinical experience no matter which university you attend and even if you do attend a BSN program adjacent to a hospital - you will have clinicals elsewhere.

 

That being said, if it is a dealbreaker for you, off the top of my head I can think of a few schools that meet the criteria:

Univ of Miami

Univ of Florida

UT Austin

Columbia Univ

UMass Amherst

These are just off the top of my head. I am sure there are more. Best wishes!
