I need help, fast.. and I heard this forum really helps. I have been accepted to 2 acc-msn programs here in cali. school 1: is a state school (cheap tuition), 2 yrs total, but you get your RN AND MSN at the end of the whole program. fewer fellowships. school 2: prestigious private school (but very expensive), 3 years total (1.5 years RN, following 1.5 years working ft as RN for clinical hrs. and ft online MSN classes). lots of connections.. ..which one sounds better to you? both programs just accepted me, and both programs start early august. help!
