I would apply to as many schools as I could for that GPA is roughly the bare minimum required to get into most nursing schools. You are fortunate that you have such a wide array of schools to choose from to get your BSN.

Look up their NCLEX pass rates. Make sure that they are all accredited and not for-profit. Call local hospitals where you wish to work and ask if they have any preferences for certain schools. Apply for all if you can.

Apply everywhere you're qualified and can afford. The "for-profit" schools may be very good or not so good, and because of their expense, should be your last option. Like a PP stated, you should check their NCLEX pass rates for the past few years. If they're >90% first time pass rate, then they're likely very good.
