When I tell people that I attend Drexel University's nursing school they are almost always taken aback. Drexel is seen as strictly engineering. Some even believe there is no point in going to Drexel unless you are in engineering. However, if I could give prospective students advice I would tell them not to be discouraged by Drexel's image and reputation as an engineering school. Although it may not be known for nursing, Drexel's nursing students graduate with the highest first-time pass rates on the NCLEX, the nursing boards, than any other school in the state.
