Pittsburgh RN School question

Posted
annenet annenet (New) New

Can anyone give me their experience with a hospital diploma program, CCAC, or a four year undergrad nursing degree in Pittsburgh? I am open to all options, and they all have their benefits. I am really searching for information that will help me make my decision on where to apply. A BSN, with possibly grad school, is my ultimate goal. Thank you.

My experience was at the U of Pittsburgh Medical Center as an RN in their ER a few years ago, but have you considered that University? They offer a traditional BSN as well as an accelerated BSN for those with a bachelor's in another discipline. They are a well know academic institution for their nursing program and medical school. They also have graduate nursing programs. I recommend your getting your BSN for your entry. There are numerous posts/discussions/debates on Allnurses about ADN vs BSN, if you are so inclined to weed through them all. Good luck.
