If you had to choose between these nursing schools in the NY area, which would you choose? Also, do hospitals take nurses from most schools or do they tend to choose from the big name institutions like NYU or Columbia?
I already have a degree so I would be transferring into a two year or accelerated BSN program. I'm considering Adelphi, College of Mount St. Vincent, or Downstate. Are there any other schools I should consider or are these the best bang for the buck?
I just completed my first semester at a private institution in the city and I had to take out a $40,000. loan to cover tuition and living expenses for one year. I really liked the school I was attending but I do not want to graduate and have over $85,000. in loans to pay off.
Your thoughts and comments would be greatly appreciated.
