Hello everyone, 

I just had my interview for Cleveland State University’s ABSN program. I am currently residing in California. I am wondering what you think about Cleveland State University’s program, if you know anything about it. Is it worth it to go out of state when I could potentially get into a school in California? 

How do you make a decision on a school? Do you basically just look at graduation rate and NCLEX pass rate?! What else should weigh in on my decision? 

Thanks 🙂

I went through CSU's ABSN program. I thought it was good and it was affordable. I think everyone but 1 person passed the NCLEX on the first try. 

As for if you should go or stay in CA it depends. Are you planning on moving and working out of state? If not why not just stay in CA and go to a school there?

I think you should look at cost, the university (is it reputable? etc), pass and graduation rates. Keep in mind it doesn't matter where the BSN is from (unless its from a sketchy for profit school).

 Thank you so much for your advice. I just applied and am waiting to hear back from them. I heard that it’s a pretty good program. I understand that it doesn’t really matter where you get your bachelors of nursing, however I would love a great engaging program. And I would love to be in a good area.

My boyfriend is going to case Western for medical school, so I might move there due to that if I get into the program. However we also decided that it might be great if I get into a direct masters program for nursing instead of an accelerated bachelors program. I am still deciding on this. Of course I need to wait until I get any acceptance to be able to make the decision :-). Thank you for your advice I really appreciate your thorough reply.
