    I know i am steering away from the topic here a little....but i am in my first year of nursing school, I am an E-5 91W(combat medic) in the MS army national guard. I was thinking about looking into a VA hospital to start my career as a nurse. What are the average starting salaries for new graduates? Does prior military service increase starting pay at all? Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.

    The MUW has an excellent program.....I appllied in March or April 05 and was contacted by the end of May ....I had a 3.6 and a 22ACT. I have talked to people that had ACT's of 18 and low GPA's that got in. I am in my second semester and i love it. You will not find more helpful instructors....and they are just fun in general. A great bunch of ladies with years of experience and knowledge.

    Mississippi University for Women!! I absolutly love it. There are times when i could point out disorganization, In my opinion it kind of weeds out those who can't adapt to a situation or overcome a small obstacle. They have NEVER changed an answer on our test even when there were people challenging them. All of our instructors have a minimum of 15 yrs hospital experience....some have been in nursing for over 40 years. They can even answer questions about other instructors lectures or clinical requirements. They have thier stuff together. The "W" has had an accredited nursing program for decades....If you are anywhere close to MS i would recomend this school. They have ADN, RN-BSN, BSN, and MSN/practitioner programs....brand new state of the art facilities and all local clinicals...I have never driven over 30 miles to clinicals. They are genorous with scholarships also...i get a 4k refund every semester!! I only came in with a 3.7 & a 22ACT
