    Hi Diane,

    I am planning into continuing my studies after the ADN too, because there are so much more job choices for those with higher qualifications. I was very interested to find out that you can go straight from ADN to Masters degree too, and many are online courses, which makes it easier if you are working. I'm planning to see how I do with my RN - if I get good grades (and am not completely burnt out by then LOL!), I might consider this route instead of RN to BsN.

    Best wishes, Lynda

    Lynda,

    I think it's a good idea to be open about going back for a BS or MS after getting the ADN. An advisor at PPCC looked over my records and said I would have to just take a statistics class and I would be ready to go on with a BSN. I hadnt really thought about the MSN but you are right, it may be a good idea to consider that as well.

    Most employers have educational benefits to help which is very nice and it also lets you get experience as a nurse so you have a better idea what direction you might want to go. I look at all the areas you can work and can't make up my mind what I would like the best !!

    Hopefully after I'm finished with clinicals and the dreaded NCLEX I will have it narrowed down.

    Hope you have a nice day, see you a bit later.

    Take Care

    Diane
