Question

  1. Hi, i am new to this forum so i hope i everything goes well on my first post

    I have a few questions on what is the best road to take.

    I am currently looking to go into a BSN program but am wondering if a CRNA school would prefer a traditional 2 year BSN program over an accelerated BSN program.

    Not sure if everyone knows what an accelerated BSN program is but its offered to students that have a BS in some other major, ex - math, english, bio, chem, etc.

    Well I was wondering if it would matter if i picked the 1 year over the 2 year?

    ===========================================
    So far this is my two routes that i mgiht take.
    This might get confusing :P so please try to bear with me

    --------
    Plan 1
    --------
    Wait until next year and go to a 2 year BSN

    Pro:
    Its a state school
    EST $10,000 a year w/ room + board + meal plan

    Con:
    Gotta wait until next year

    --------
    Plan 2
    --------
    Wait until next year and go to a accelerated BSN program.

    Pro:
    Its a state school
    EST $10,000 a year w/ room + board + meal plan

    Con:
    Gotta wait until next year

    --------
    Plan 3
    --------
    Try to go to school now at a private university. 2 yr BSN.

    Pro:
    Get a head start
    Get out same time as accelerated BSN
    Class load is lighter
    Can work + go to school

    Con:
    Very expensive $17 - $20,000 - Have to commute

    --------
    Plan 4
    --------
    Do an ADN program. (not sure if they are still accepting applications). Then later get a BSN.

    Pro:
    Get a head start
    Can work + go to school
    Can get a BSN later but more schooling

    Con:
    Still have to get a BSN
    Not sure on price but am sure its expensive because of more schooling.

    ============================================
    Please let me know what you would choose and if you have another plan please let me know i am very intrested in what you have to say.

    I am going to try to make a poll and hope i don't screw up. First time and want to try a bit of everything :P

    I'm in an accelerated BSN program now and I plan on going to CRNA school in a few years. Trust me, if you can do really well in a one year BSN program, you can probably do well in CRNA school. My program is insanely difficult and we're all total overacheivers, because we have to learn a huge volume of info. in a very short time period. But if you chose the accelerated route you definitely won't have time to work and you won't have much of a social life either.
