Hi All,As I get closer to applying to ABSN programs, I'm grappling with the decision of where to apply. Aside from the concerns on whether or not I'll get in, I'm worried about what will happen once I get out. I live in CA right now and am seriously considering the University of Oklahoma- Glendale program. Aside from all the CA nursing schools being impacted, this program looks like it may actually have some room. The problem is that I'm planning to move back to MA/NH sometime early to mid 2011. I'm thinking ahead to fellowship/new grad programs. Am I better off going to a nursing school in MA/NH? In other words, do I have a better shot at getting into a new grad/fellowship program in MA/NH if I went to a school in MA/NH or does it really have no bearing? That's my only fear about doing school here in CA. Also, does the caliber of school make a difference? For instance, would a RN from the MGN program give me a better shot than an RN from OU-Glendale? The schools back east I'm considering are the MGH ABSN, the MCPHS program (in Worcester), as well as the Rhode Island College ABSN program. Does anyone have any feedback on any of the programs which I have mentioned in this post? I really appreciate the feedback!
