Good Nursing Schools In (Southern) California?

Hello there: I’m a high school junior now and I am looking into some colleges that I can apply to in the southern California region next year. I took the SAT and got a 1850 (580 Reading 620 Math 650 Writing), but I do want to raise this score.

I thought about the Cal State nursing schools in my area, but I know that the budget crisis in the state is affecting admissions and classes, so I am leaning towards the private and UC schools. So far, I’m considering visiting and applying to Mt Saint Mary’s College, Azusa Pacific, UCLA, and UC Irvine for next year. Which of these schools are the most strongest in nursing? I heard that private colleges have the most strong alumni and career networks, so should I consider public or private schools?

    If you want to be a nurse in CA, you may complete an associate’s degree, a bachelor’s degree, or a master’s degree in nursing to qualify for the licensing exam.

    You can see the approved CA nursing degree programs at http://www.rn.ca.gov/schools/rnprograms.shtml You may also want to consider attending a college with a high licensing exam pass rate as shown at http://www.rn.ca.gov/schools/passrates.shtml

    UCLA Nursing – Prelicensure: Freshman admit rate is approximately 4.4% and transfer admit rate is approximately 7.4% (Fall 2011). There is a ranked waitlist for the nursing applicants who are not initially accepted. Alternate major is NOT considered.

    Irvine Nursing Science: Freshman admit rate is approximately 8.6% and transfer admit rate is approximately 4.6% (Fall 2011). There is NO waitlist for the nursing applicants who are denied admission. Alternate major is considered if the student qualified for UCI admission but was not accepted into nursing.
