I was wondering if anyone had any input on either of these schools! I was accepted into both and need to make a decision! I was leaning more towards MGH but am not 100% positive! HELP!!:confused:

I would love to get some advice on MGH Institute of Health Professions because I too got accepted and need to make a decision. I was also accepted into New York University's program, does anyone have any advice on which of the two would be the better school?

Thank you

I'm currently in an ABSN program but not at MGH or MCP. I've heard both programs are okay but that MGH's pathophysiology and pharmacology course is online with the instructor living out of state.

I have the exact same decision to make, but I'm leaning more towards MCPHS, just because I have heard overall better reviews about the MCHPS program in worcester/manchester, especially in terms of setting you up for a better future!!! Tough call though for sure.

I dont know much about either school but as a nurse I can tell you your best bet is to go to the program that offers a BSN. The job market is real tuff right now and most hospitals wont even look at you if you dont have a BSN. Also look at where the colleges go to clinicals. Some schools start off their first clinical in nursing home's so you need to see if that is the experience you really want. Also look at their first time NCLEX pass rate, not just their pass rate bc that looks at every one even after their first try! Lastly look and see if they offer any special externships or work study in the hospital, that always looks good on a resume and gives you some good experiences! Good luck on your decision!
