in the last week, u of az has posted a change to their programs. they have dropped their 2nd degree bsn and have added a mepn program (master's entry to the profession of nursing (mepn) pathway
). this is available to those who already have a non-nursing bachelor's degree.
check out the link for more info:
i called to get more info. they said tuition would probably run between 35-45k. (depends on residency status). they will start having info sessions on the new program starting at the end of this month.
I don't think I know enough details yet to say if this is a great option or an overpriced option. I'll be attending an info session soon & posting the details. One big question is how this Master's program will bridge you to a NP vs. working towards a NP from a BSN. May be worth the cost then if that's your final goal.
