What about Simmons nursing? Opinions? My D20 loves it. I think she can get accepted into some schools with more name recognition, but I’m not sure if that matters as much as the clinical experience she’d get going to school in the heart of Boston’s hospital district.

@momof3cherubs I know nothing about that school but having it so close to clinicals is ideal. I have heard that a BSN doesn’t have to be from a name recognizable school as there will be a shortage of nurses in the future and they all will be needed. Not sure if that is completely true or not

Read: What matters is the quality of the nursing program, and not the prestige of the college. Employers in a region know which colleges have provided well-prepared grads in the past.

Daughter 17 is about 95% sure she wants to go in to nursing but knows direct admit nursing in CA is an impossible task for those under a 4.2 gpa. So she applied to various schools in and out of state. Mom is hoping she goes direct vs. undergrad then figuring out she does want to go into nursing and have to go the ABSN route after graduating.

SAT: 1200
ACT: 26 (retaken in Oct hopefully higher now)
GPA: 3.9

ASU Direct - $14,500 Merit invitation to apply to Honors college - but honors seems hard to manage on top of already difficult curriculum so doubt she will apply
Florida Atlantic University - Direct - waiting on merit
Boise State - Pre nursing (safety school)

Applied and waiting
Seattle University- Direct
Univ of Portland - Direct
USF - Direct
Gonzaga - Direct
UC Irvine - Direct
Chico - pre nursing
Cal State Long Beach - pre nursing
SDSU - biology
Cal Poly - biology
UCSB - biology

Have visited all of the CA schools and will visit ASU soon and the Pacific Northwest if she gets into any of those schools. She loves the idea of Florida but dad and I don’t want her to go so far from home.

Congrats @futurenurse23 on being accepted at University of North Florida!

@LollieW Congrats to your daughter on Boise State, Florida Atlantic and ASU Nursing. Nice merit at ASU! Can’t wait to hear on her other applications
