Am I creating a conflict that isn't necessary or is my point of view valid?
D is going to go to nursing school for a BSN. We live right outside Philadelphia. D wants to go 'away' to college which is understandable. All her siblings are going 'away' and really enjoying it and thriving. The nursing major and her GPA/ACT scores is making it more challenging (financial and academic fit - direct entry programs) as there are fewer of the right fit programs.
She was originally going to attend Rutgers Camden - it is a financial fit and an academic fit and the clinical opportunities are over the top fantastic. Her other 'fits' are in more remote locations - Buffalo, E. Stroudsburg PA, and a small college outside Pittsburgh- which does also have great clinical opportunities (but I think it may be way too religious) for example. I have encouraged her to keep considering Rutgers Camden because of those opportunities. She is seemingly determined to go 'away' for school.
But I am wondering if she gets a BSN, and does well, and she comes back to find a job near us -- will it matter that she went to school in Buffalo or whatever?? I know this may be best in the nursing forum but it tends to a tad slow. Am I making something out of nothing or not?
