Is it better to go to a community college or junior college first or go straight a 4 year college?

There is a community college in the city I live in and they have a nursing program that is good, but I want to get that college experience of meeting others and getting the right knowledge and right college experience from the RIGHT college for the career path of Nursing.

You may as well get your basics out of the way for a quarter of the cost. Remember, doesn't matter where you start, but where you finish.

It would be great to save money by going to a community college for the first year or two.

Starting your career without debt will reduce stress later in life.

Hi Chrishuan, I'd recommend looking closely at the community college to learn more about how transfers work. Did you know that come community colleges have partnerships with colleges and universities to guarantee transfer opportunities for students who maintain a certain GPA?

If you can find a program like that, I think it's a great choice. It's a much more affordable way to begin your college career. While you may not get the full college experience in the first few years, you can enjoy them if and when you transfer to get your four year degree. In the meantime, I recommend checking out extracurriculars offered by your local community colleges, seeking out hands on internships, and getting involved in your community.
