My room mate is a nursing major here at Norfolk State University, and she told me that she chose NSU because our school has one the best nursing programs (as well as Social Work). I think our music program is pretty swell, I just don't know if picking up a minor is a good idea. The curriculum for nursing at NSU is no joke, most people end up changing their majors. My room mate also wants to pick up a minor but she doesn't think she will have the room on her schedule for more classes (especially if she wants to graduate in 4 years or 4 1/2 years). But its your decision, I'm sure you'll be able to handle it! If both of those studies are your passion then go for it!! Good Luck, and I hope you pick the right school for YOU. Tootles.

PVAMU has a great nursing program. I think they are like number 2 in the state of Texas. (If not number 2 close to it)

Even though I'm not an nursing major, Skegee has a good nursing program. Also, there are plenty of scholarships in our nursing departments if you know the right connections(lol).

North Carolina Central University. . . . http://www.nccu.edu/artsci/nursing/ In 2001, they finished with the highest passing rate on the bar, among all North Carolina Colleges (beating WSSU, UNC, App. State, and other schools). They continue to bolster their Distance/Extension Education program and have working relationships with World-Class and historically excellent hospitals like Duke, the VA Hospital and Lincoln Health Center. They don't call Durham the City of Medicine, for nothing.

Hampton University was the first HBCU to offer a PhD program in nursing....please check us out. I think anywhere you go Nursing should be a tough program. You also want to pick a school that has plenty of internship possibilities. Not too sure about how much money they offer...but if you contact them they will happily let you know.

I'm sorry I know this thread is OLD but I had to say that NSU's nursing program only has a 48% passing rate of the NCLEX exam(needed for RN license), it has the lowest passing rate in VA. :?

Determination is a significant characteristic of becoming an exceptional nurse. Many pursue nursing and succeed. However, it takes a special person to receive all the wonderful rewards the profession offers. I recommend NCCU for the following reasons: 1. The faculty is concerned about the success of each student 2. The experience of attending an HBCU is precious 3. The program prepares the student to beable to transition into the "real
