How long did it take you?

  1. HI! I am new to the board here. I am just starting school on the 26th for nursing and I am so excited!

    I am just curious how long did it take you to graduate from the point that you first started school?

    Itr took me 3 years to complete my BSN. I earned a BA during my first go-around in "collegeland", before I had any desire to be a nurse.

    From prereq's to took me 4 years for ADN. I worked and went to school part-time until the last 2 semesters...quit work, went to school full-time and took out student loans and maxed out credit cards.
    Took me 3 years for an ADN too, including the year for all my prereq's.

    Wow thanks for everyone who replied. I am really looking forward to all the education! I am currently working full time and married with 2 boys. Wish me luck!

    I worked full time and went to school full-time. I already had a degree when I started nursing school so I didn't need to do any prereq's. Took me 2 years total.

    Good luck to you!

    It took me four years to get my ADN but I also worked part time, had two small kids and babysat six others. I was busy. I graduated in 86 and just went back in late 2000 to get my BS. I worked full time and now have five teenagers and used distance education and got my BS in one year. I am working on my masters now and hope to be done in one year also. Distance is very hard though. NO one to bounce things off of.......

    Hope that helps you.
