Accelerated BSN Programs in Philadelphia/South Jersey Area
I'm currently a junior at Temple University and am starting to think about going into an accelerated B.S.N. program. Right now I'm a double major in Jazz Trumpet Performance and Math, but would drop to a math minor if I decide to go the nursing route. As I am a junior, I need to make this decision quickly and I need to start taking the prerequisite requirements at Temple so I can get into any of these programs. The schools I'm looking at are UMDNJ, Thomas Jefferson (FACT program), and Drexel (ACE program).
Out of these three:
1) Which is the hardest to get in (how hard)?
2) Which is the best program?
Keep in mind, I'm a New Jersey resident which is why I'm seriously considering UMDNJ. (in-state tuition, proximity)
Another question, are there any other schools you would recommend in the area with similar prerequisite requirements? Also, with the proposed Rutgers-UMDNJ merger how would that affect the program at UMDNJ?
Thanks in advance to any replies!
