Hi everyone!

My name is Deana, 19 years old, born and raised in the concrete jungle, and striving to become a Pediatric RN. I am currently a first semester sophomore in college but unfortunately, a semester behind. I have decided to become a member of this online nursing community in hopes that I will acquire some much needed guidance and advice on my endeavor to becoming a nurse. However, first things first, lets not jump the gun here - first I need to get into a nursing program. If there are any tips, advice, or anything that may help me prepare and successfully pass the entrance exam PLEASE share! Also, what are some great nursing schools in NYC?

Hope everyone is having a beautiful day and thanks in advance!

Future Nurse Dee :)

You have a few options, I would say most NYC nursing schools are two year programs that you get your ADN (associates degree in nursing) from, take your NCLEX, and then you have to continue on as an RN for your BSN. I went to Kingsborough Communtiy College for my ADN and graduated this June. Besides for KBCC there is also:

- Queensborough (ADN)

- Borough of Manhattan Community College (ADN)

- College of Staten Island (ADN, RN-BSN)

- Hunter College (ADN, RN-BSN, MSN)

- Lehman College (ADN, RN-BSN)

- City Tech (ADN, RN-BSN)

- SUNY Downstate (Accelerated BS in Nursing - if you have your BS in another degree - RN-BSN)

Then you have private colleges like St. Paul's School of Nursing, Pace, NYU, but it gets pricey! I'm sure you will figure out what works best though :)
