I really want to get into the Nursing field asap. I've wasted too much time already and need some advice.
What's the major difference in work and pay with RN's vs. BSN???
Also, it's pretty hard getting into an Accelerated BSN here in SoCal so it seems my only choice may be to get the AA RN. Which i would be very happy with if i only knew the difference. I did take some science classes during my Univ stint. Finished with a BA but i still need A & P, and Microbio for the Nursing pre reqs.
Thanks everybody. I can't wait to get into the field and start working.
Wow. Thank you all very much!
Sorry about the Title. Was confused and still a newbie.
Yeap. I'm 31, married, and have a 6 month old at home. In the real estate field at the moment so i'm free whenever i feel like it. I'm not too worried about my situation. I've heard, read, and known other people with worse case scenario's reaching their goals.
Have to stay positive!
Reason why i asked is a good friend told me it would take about the same time doing the AA vs. the BSN because the programs are so "impacted" here in So Cal. So if the time difference and pay is going to be the same, might as well go for something i was planning on getting later anyways.
Now with so many Nursing programs being so overcrowded, i wonder how much longer this shortage will be?
