    If you could, what would be the point of the 4th year?
    If you are asking if you could hit the "pause" button at that point and have an associate's degree, the answer is no. They are two different programs.

    I graduated from a BSN program, and here are my thoughts:

    I feel like my BSN program was definitely worth the time involved to graduate as a bachelor's prepared nurse. Now this depends on what your goals for your career are as well as your current financial and family situation. As a young married woman with no kids, I'm glad I took this route.

    Overall the preparation was very good. I do feel that in some ways the program was a little too elementary (poster presentations, word searches, etc.) That was only a small portion of my learning however. The trials that I went through throughtout my program were mostly time management related. Many people talk about how nursing school is sooo hard. I did not feel that the material was difficult, but I did feel that there was ALOT of it. Time management skills are essential!

    You can only sit for boards after graduation from whatever program you choose. You can not even register until your final transcripts are sent from your school to your state BON.

    At the school I am appling to the nursing program is 6 semesters long and you can sit for your NCLEX after completing the 5th semester. However I can't answer the rest of your questions cuz I'm still in the application stage of the game.
