I am thinking of completing my MSN through Clarkson online. I currently live in FL. The school seems to have good reviews but the name doesn't make it sound very legit. I'm wotried that if I get my degree that people may not hire me because or the name (never heard of it or its a college vs university situation).
I've never seen the campus. How is it? Has anyone completed any graduate education though Clarkson?

Yes Clarkson is completely legit. I'm not sure why you're questioning the name? If I remember correctly, Bishop Clarkson hospital was founded in the early 1900's. Several years ago, Clarkson hospital merged with the University of NE Medical Center. When I lived in Omaha, I went to PT there. When I originally started nursing school in 2003, I started at Clarkson. Great experience, I just ended up finishing elsewhere in Omaha later on due to life circumstances. But yes, completely reputable.

Thanks for the response! I'm from a different state so I've never heard of it before.

Yep, Clarkson is a great school, and is definitely well-known in this area for their quality nursing programs.
