Throughout the awesome prtetan of things you actually secure a B+ with regard to hard work. Where exactly you lost me personally was on the specifics. As they say, the devil is in the details And it couldn't be much more accurate in this article. Having said that, allow me reveal to you just what did work. Your article (parts of it) can be incredibly convincing and this is most likely the reason why I am making an effort in order to comment. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Secondly, even though I can see a jumps in reasoning you come up with, I am not really convinced of exactly how you seem to unite your details which make your conclusion. For the moment I shall yield to your issue however hope in the near future you connect your dots better.


If you will hold a BS in another field, your best option would be to look for programs called “accelerated BSN” or “post-baccalaureate BSN” programs. You may or may not need a couple of pre-req courses if you didn’t already do them as part of your BS and had them within the last 5-7 years, otherwise you could enroll directly into the BSN program and could be a BSN RN in as little as 18-24 months. I wouldn’t waste your time going for an ADN, as it would take you the same amount of time to complete (assuming you could be admitted right away). The accelerated BSN programs are not as completative for admission in many places, so this might be your best option. You could also look for a direct entry MSN program which would earn your RN license along with the MSN and it would take roughly 3-4 years total if you attended full time. If all you want to do is work in an ER or ICU you don’t need a master’s, at least not right away. Most Master’s degree programs are wanting you to choose a specialty, for example, Nurse Practitioner or Clinical Nurse Specialist, and for those programs you need a year or more of work experience before you can apply. Not only that, your employer may offer tuition assistance to return to school to obtain the higher degree.
