I want to pursue nursing whether it be travel nursing, local nursing, or even missionary nursing.
The two schools are just my top two prestigious universities that would be a dream to get into, but I don’t know how they differ when it comes to the society that surrounds them.
I have done some research on the groups and activities that would make one stand out from the other as well as the problem with majors (Yale does not offer a BSN major and Duke does). I found that Yale has a Ballroom Dancing club and they have many, many balls, which is like a dream of mine to attend one. I just don’t think Duke offers that or anything like that.
I know that sports wise Duke is a better option (except when it comes to the Harvard-Yale football game) but i’m not all that big on sports. I am more about academics and I’m also not a party-goer and very Christian. I obviously would go to the Duke sporting events and enjoy them greatly, but I was wondering if Duke or Yale has a Christian community and what it’s like.
I looked into Yale’s Christian community and there are a lot of options. I haven’t done that much into looking into Duke’s religious aspects yet, but that’s why I’m asking.
Duke sounds like the better option because of the Bachelor’s in Science of Nursing major, pricing and climate, but Yale seems like I would have a much better social life!
I have other options for college, these two are just two that I want to know more about before I make a bad financial and career decision. I have options like Asbury University in Wilmore Kentucky which is a Christian private school and has a great nursing program and pricing would be close to the same as Duke.
Thank you to anyone with any information on the social life at Duke and which would be a better suit for me!
