hi! i really hope someone can help me with this question... i'm having a hard time deciding on where i want to attend nursing school. i've applied to a new local program in central pennsylvania that is connected to the local hospital. they are about to graduate their 2nd class of rns. since it is such a new program they are still working on getting their accredidation. they expect the nln to do its evaluation this fall (which is when i want to start), but i am still wary about going there prior to them actually receiving that accredidation. i don't believe they'll have any trouble getting the accredidation since they have had a 100% success rate of their grads passing the nclex so far, but is it smart for me to go there before i'm sure they'll receive the accredidation? i want to do things the right way and while it would be extremely convenient for me to do this program since it is so close to my home, i don't want to waste any money or be less credible as an rn. i should note that i already have a bs degree in another field of study and this program i speak of does not offer an associates degree, but only a diploma...will this make a difference later on if i decide i want to further my nursing education to a bsn? thanks in advance for all of your responses!
