I was just admitted into CSU San Bernardino's Winter 2012 nursing program. I have never been there and would like to know about the campus, the social life/networking and surrounding areas. I am a 23 year old female and will be far from home (7 hours). I want to go to a school where I feel it is a comfortable learning environment. I've heard and read reviews that the school itself is beautiful, but the surrounding areas and streets are "bad areas". Does anyone know what the stats are for nursing grads that actually gets jobs right out of the program? Does CSUSB have connections with hospitals where you have a better chance of getting a job out of the program? Are there any clubs for nursing students?Where are there nice places to live for a first-year transfer student, on campus or off? My last question is: am I better off going applying for a JC program (one that I already know has hospital connections and 100% NCLEX pass rates) than go to CSUSB and spend more money going there? Sorry about all of the questions. I just really want the best education offered to me and to be as comfortable as possible while I am going to nursing school. Thank you for your time!
