next spring i plan on going to college for nursing and i was reading about the nursing programs for each school, pretty much all of them have the nursing school 30 minutes to an hour away from the main campus and 1500 people at most. do you take all of your classes at the regional campus? isnt it boring compared to the main campus?

Here is one thing I've learned in my first week of nursing school...you don't have a lot of time to be bored while on campus. Besides, school is what you make of it. You can fun with your classmates whether there's 1500 people on campus or 50,000. My first go with college I went to a HUGE university with 35,000 people- meh. Maybe it's because I'm older, but I prefer the CC route this time because there's not so much going on.

Good luck!:)

Regional school = better/cheaper parking, cheaper tuition, less wait for resources, and better instructor to student ratio.

You won't have time to be bored. If social interaction is a major priority for you, you can always find the coffee shops, bars, etc the main campus kids hang out in. I did the major university campus life thing, and it was fun. I was also an English lit major so I had all kinds of free time to hang out around campus with my friends. Nowadays my non nursing friends are lucky to see me once a month, if that.

Did I mention the cheaper tuition? :)
