    If so, the Rowdy Cowgirls of Idaho are still seeking Caroline and Nick from the Nashville NSNA convention. Caroline and Nick will definitely remember us... their fellow students Michelle and Billy may or may not. Anyone from Philly know student nurses with those names? Possibly from Temple, but we don't know for sure. If so please have them contact me here so we can set up some off-site conversation. Thanks a million!

    Do you have any specific questions? I did the accelerated BSN program at Drexel, I had a previous degree in bio. Philly is a great town I think-- cheaper then many other big cities, close to NYC and the beach, and lots to do here.

    Thanks for the replies. I am currently in nursing school in a different state, but my sister is interested in moving to Philly for her nursing education. There seems to be many schools in the area, and I am wondering which have the best reputation. She is likely going to pursue a BSN. I'm really hoping she moves to Philly, so I can come and visit. I'm already jealous just thinking about her living in such a cool city!

    My sis had another question. Is it affordable to live in Philly? She is a poor student like all of us, but would really like to avoid dorms if possible. Are there cheap, but liveable apartments near the schools? We are from an area that the cost of living is pretty low, so I am eager to hear what it's like there.
