I am VERY new to this site. A little about me...I have an A.S. in Allied Health, a B.A. in Media Arts and spent 4 years in the United States Air Force as a medical technician. I keep landing boring, desk jobs that don't offer much advancement. Needless to say, I am over it!
Well, I am now considering the second degree BSN program at IUPUI. Right now, I'm trying to figure out how to pay for it. I qualify for a portion of the Post 9/11 GI Bill...waiting to hear back from VA. I only get a portion because while I was active duty, I used the military College Loan Repayment Program (I went to college for 3 years after high school and basically just had a good time). I've been doing lots of research, and it seems difficult to "find" money to pay for a second degree. How did you do it?
Also, in the military, a medic does alot of what a nurse does, except for push meds. Will any of this training transfer over? For my A.S. I took: Fundamentals of Patient Care, Basic Nursing, Intermediate Nursing, Intro Clinical Practicum, Emergency Dept Practicum, Inpatient Unit Practicum, Outpatient Unit Practicum, EMT Basic...
One more thing....how long did it take to finish your prereqs?
Thank you all and have a wonderful rest of the week!!
