Selecting a Nursing Program

When selecting a nursing program, there are a myriad of factors to consider. Just a few of the things to consider are tuition, location, class size, alumni network, reputation (both locally and nationally -- ask around places you would like to work if you're unsure about this), educational support, hiring rates after graduation, and hospital affiliations.

A good example of reasons to select a nursing program would include reasons such as, "I like this school because it is in a geographic area with a large demand for nurses, it has a good reputation, reasonable tuition, and most students find a job before they even graduate." Don't pick a school merely for convenience or because it's the cheapest...choosing a nursing program is a big decision and if you do enough detective work, you are bound to find one that suits your needs. There are many options so it can be tough at first, but take your time and consider all the options before you make the sacrifice of a lot of time and money. In the end, your choice is up to you!
