So, I just found out that the two nursing programs (public universities) that I have applied to for the fall did not accept me . There are other options out there, like Herzing university and National American University (private, for-profit) , BUT, does it matter what nursing school you graduate from? Or is it more important that you passed the NCLEX? What do employers look for when hiring a new grad? What about grad school? Does it matter what school you got your undergrad degree from? Please help!
