This is my first thread so I apologize if I posted in the wrong forum. Basic question.
When and what steps to do I need to take to figure out how to get my Bachelors Degree in Nursing? I'm starting the Associates Degree in August at Phoenix College (ADN Program) and I want to go on to get my Bachelors Degree. Do I need to already be enrolled in a bridge program? Are private colleges and a transfer to ASU my only options? These schools are so expensive!! Thanks for your help. I'm hoping to get a job when I've got my Associates Degree in Nursing, but want to continue on to get my Bachelors as magnet hospitals aren't hiring RN's with an Associates Degree.
Thanks for your input.

@sweetjess321, I still haven't been able to land a job in a hospital, so I really have no advice there. I have connections, am enrolled in my RN-BSN... still no one is biting. My classmates who were hired in hospitls were already working there as CNAs, so I think that's the best way in.
@amiklus, the length of the RN-BSN depends on how many credits/classes you have when you enroll there. For me, it will take a total of 12 5 week classes. ASU was requiring me to take 2 additional courses that GCU did not require. My program is entirely online.
