I am looking at either LCC or MSU's accelerated nursing programs
for next Spring (2008). From what I have heard so far, many people feel LCC has a more hands-on program with better practical experience. It also doesn't cost nearly as much to become a RN if you go with the LCC route. My only concerns are that I think eventually I will want a BSN in order to pursue becoming a CRNA. From that standpoint, it seems to make more sense to try for admission into MSU since I won't have to deal with taking an RN-BSN completion program. I think what it comes down to is this: Which school is going to prepare me to be a better nurse. If its LCC, I'll be there in a heartbeat, but if there isn't that big of a difference in the two programs, it seems like MSU is the better choice. If anyone out there is in either school or could give some advice about the difference in the two programs, please let me know.
