What should I do about this college situation?
Alright, so I can't decide on what I should do for college..I'm majoring in nursing, and these are my options... 1: My dad wants me to go to a community college so I can get my associates degree in nursing, and then buy the time I'm 21 I could have a steady job, and will be "making a lot of money", according to my father.... But with this, I get not as much college experience, but it will move my life a lot faster as far as "money making". 2: The other option is going to the University of Kansas(which I'm currently already enrolled in). They only have a four year program so I would be getting my Bachelors degree in nursing. With this choice I would be getting plenty of college experience, but it would take longer to to get to where I want to go. I think I want to be a transplant coordinator, or work somewhere in the cardiology department. That's my plan. I was really looking forward to a college experiences, but I also like money...Just some advice please! No rude remarks! Thanks!:)

I would go to the University of Kansas. It would be a great college experience, and employers would rather hire someone that graduated from there than from a community college.
