Hi all I just joined so want to say hi to all first. Second, i'm trying to start up college again in the winter. I was going to MCC (mott community college) and am still deciding to go to OCC (oakland commuinty college) or Baker. I live in Michigan and only have 9 pre-reqs to go before entering clinicals. I'm only going to be going part time b/c i have 2 children and working full time to take care of them with thier soon to be stepdad. So how do i decide which college is best for me? I want to get everything rolling now so i can just sign up for winter classes. I appreciate any feedback!!!:bow:

MamaX2...here is my 2 cents....Look at the tuition cost per school. 2. look at the driving distance to each from your home and or work. 3. check with your state board of nursing and look at thier pass rates (nclex) for each school to see if there is a school that consistantly puts out higher scoring students.4. Look at their clinical sites, compare the experiences you would be getting at each site.5. Do they have an up-to-date Simulation Lab, Computer Lab and Smart-Classroom, Pod_casting, etc. for student support? 6. Check the reputation of each school with REAL practicing people like nurses, therapists, mangers and such. With all that you can make a choice. One I didnt mention, but depending the competition level is what are your odss of getting in to school A versus School B. Getting in to a sunpar school and becoming a nurse is better than waiting on a waiting list somewhere for a dream school. Good luck. Don't let anything stand in your way. Go for it!!!:rolleyes:

Hi and welcome,

Your state's BON website should have NCLEX info for you. In picking a school one of my biggest priorities was finding one where I would get accepted into the program! The competition can be huge. There were over 400 applicants for 40 spots in my LPN program. Keep us posted!
