I went this route because I heard the statistics on how many new RNs leave the profession within the first year of licensed practice and I wanted to make sure I liked what was doing to stick with it for several years.
I had planned to start my BSN after a year or 2 once I decided I wanted to stay in nursing. Many hospitals offer tuition reimbursement for nurses to further their education. I'm taking advantage of my hospital's program so I will not have to go into a lot of debt.
Before shelling out 80-90K on a school please be sure that you really want to become a RN and make a long term career out of it. You should also be aware that many new nurses are having a hard time finding jobs; for some it is taking more than a year to find employment. That is something to consider since loan repayments start a few months after graduation.
