Nursing school choices

by bschevere bschevere (New) New

So I've have a lot of choice between school/college programs. Trying to get some insight from both. Please help

Any nursing students who attended a technical school? What was/is your experience? Are you graduating with a certificate? Was it easy to find a job?

Any nursing students who attended a college? BSN? Continuing education program? AAS? What was your experience? How long did it take you? Was it easy to find a job?

If by "tech school" you mean clock hour (not credit hours that may be transferable), those programs are primarily for CNA & LV/PN. Within the last 5 years or so, there has been a significant movement for hospitals to only hire BSN nurses... driven by multiple factors ... and it is increasing. ADN nurses still have plenty of employment opportunities in non-acute (not hospital) settings.
