Pass rate for the last 10 years is important. Location, Location, Location....cost of tuition and as Eric said...the one you can get accepted at! Try the suburbs, Like North of Austin, Greater DFW, Houston, etc. Cosider moving to small town with no wait list. Ask for stats and facts. Most schools don't mind. The Tx Board of Nurse Examiner has NCLEX pass rates for LVN, ADN, BSN programs available on their website. ALSO look at the clinical sites (which hospitals will you train at) and the SIMULATION and/or LAB/CLassroom facilities. For Instance Temple College, Central Texas College, Austin Community College, McClennan Community College all have about the same cost, facilities and access to large training hospitals. It boils down to matter of opinion, traffic, where you live, how far are you willing to commute and "when" you can get your foot in the door. Some schools are rated Accetable or Exemplary by the board and NLNAC. Check on that too. Most employers don't care where you went to school, but rather when can you start to work! At least in Central Texas.
Excelsior College's slogan is so true......"what you know is more important than where you learned it"
