I'm wondering how much difference it makes to graduate from an "Ivy League" nursing school like Duke. What impact is there in graduating from a place like Duke or Emory vs. a state school or even community college. I'm finishing up my ADN and looking at Rn-BSN programs. I have the grades and academic horsepower to get into top tier schools, but I can't see spending major $$$$ for a degree that I can get much cheaper at a local state school. Also what are the top-ranked online Rb-BSN programs?
