Hi guys. I'm writing to try to crowd source your insights to help me make the decision on where I'll go to school this fall. I currently have the privilege of choosing between BC's Direct Entry Masters and UPenn's ABSN/MSN programs, am on the wait list for Yale's GEPN program, and am anticipating the situation in which I get admitted to Vanderbilt's Pre-Specialty Program. This is all for FNP specialty. The factors that matter to me most are quality of education to prepare me to be an excellent FNP, length, and cost. The only thing I care about for location is the cost of living.

If you are choosing between these 4 programs, how would you rank them and why? Can people who have made this choice before chime in on why you chose what you chose? And can others in the process of making this choice tell me their thoughts? 

Thank you all a bunch!

Thank you guys! Why Yale over everything else?

Right now I’m waitlisted there’s and I’m just gonna pretend like I wont get in. If it’s between the 2 year MSN at BC and the 3.5-4 year ABSN/MSN at UPenn, what would you choose and why? Thank you!

Just think the name value, and the cost of living is cheaper in New Haven compared to Philly. Access to NYC. Between UPenn and BC both are great, just go off location. I personally would do UPENN because of the name (I know how shallow), but honestly anything that will help you get your foot in the door after graduation.
