What kind of programs do they offer? I heard that SCC only offered associates degrees, no bachelors.

They do only offer associates...LPN...RN. The LPN is a bit easier to get in to. I think I heard last time they did enrollment for the RN the lowest was 53 and for the LPN it was actually very low...like in the 20's or 30's. I am in a situation where I have to do the LPN first...but they do have a bridge program form LPN to RN as well...it all depends on your situation.

EKU's Nursing program is one of the top Nursing Programs! The EKU graduates always get offered the job first! Have to warn you it is one VERY HARD program to get through!

thats funny because i was told that the scc nursing students had more hands on experience than eku nursing students and that the hospitals preferred hands on experience rather than book experience. i don't know, that is just what i was told.

If EKU offers 4 year programs and SCC does not, I would think EKU has the advantage. I also have heard that EKU has the best nursing program in the state.

EKU has a wonderful nursing program. The bachelors program is not too tough. The ADN, or the associates program is a beast!! They are very hardcore. As for SCC, they have one of the top ranked programs in the state. They have one of the most competitive programs to get into. I would recommend SCC if you can get in. However, you have to have atleast 55 points or so to even be considered. EKU's program is much easier to get into, and doesn't require nearly as many points. Good luck with whatever choice you make.:-)

SCC program is much easier. I know from personal experience. I failed out at EKU and passed very easily at SCC. I also know that doctors prefer nurses from EKU to work in their offices. Good luck on nursing, it is hard anywhere you go.

Check out the schools state board failure rate that is your best indicator of the program. Your GPA is the most important factor in getting into nursing school

get a BSN at least you will need it soon the ANA is going to rule that only nurses with BSN's are professional nurses all LPN's & ADN's will be technical nurses

That is incorrect. They have tried that before and failed miserably. Also, GPA is not the most important factor. Yes, it is important, but there are a lot of areas that way in on the amount of points obtained.
Funny

This is funny. This has been going around since I was in nursing school (a while ago). A BSN and as ADN get paid the EXACT same amount of money. I know, I have my BSN. An RN is an RN regardless if you go two years or four years. If you want to do something like management, then you will probably need your BSN. If you want to stick with things like direct patient care (which is the reason I went into nursing), charge nurse, unit supervisor, all you need is an ADN. Good luck to you!!

Everyone I know and some people I dont know, but overhear talking in public are going to be 'nurses'. All these dislocated workers, high school grads, people who need a new career in general are going into nursing in some area or other. How easy is a program that 'anyone' can do and get into? And where are all the jobs going to be when ALL of these people get out of school? When the market is completely saturated with hundreds or thousands of nurses looking for work, where will they go. And I know this from experience...when the market gets too full of a particular field....pay goes down....
research the stats

It is common knowledge that the nursing/medical field is the thing to be doing if you are going to college and want a job after graduating. Do you know how many people that are back in school again after getting their degrees in other fields and that particular degree is not helping them at all? Do your research and you will find that nurses are in high demand and anyone that is looking for a good job is going that route.

Anyone can apply to nursing school. But alot don't get accepted and alot more don't pass. There is a nursing shortage and it is getting worse. Alot of nurses are retired or getting ready to retire. Also alot of people go into nursing because of the money and don't work very long because it is one of the most stressful and hardest jobs that you can do. It also has a HUGE responsibility. You literally have peoples lives in your hands.
