Alright...after ALOT of searching, I stumbled upon St. Margaret School of Nursing, which is based out of the Univeristy of Pittsburgh Medical Center. Perks include a Tution Reimbursment Plan. Once i've graduated, I sign a 2 year "if they need me contract". If they offer me a job, I have to take it for 2 years... if they dont offer me a job, they pay for my school, and I get to go whereever i want. So a total fee for school would be about 1500 dollars. Which sounds GREAT. Problems I'm thinking of....It's a diploma program. Is there a problem with having your diploma? I was hoping to graduate with some sort of degree....And also.. this school is in pittsburgh and after the two years, i'm hoping to work in the columbus ohio area. Will it be a problem moving? Is my rn license good where ever i go? THanks ya'll!
I graduated from a diploma program in 1990 and the amount of clinical experience was invaluable.
you can always go back and get your BSN after you graduate (which is what many of my friends have done)
either way, I wish you all the best
ps > as far as I know, you only have to take the exam once? JUST NEED TO PAY FOR ANOTHER LISCENSE WHEN MOVING TO ANOTHER STATE
