Im in my last semester of prereqs to get into nursing school, which, hopefully I will be starting in August.
Anyways, I was thinking for a while that I wanted to go on to become an NP, but now, Im not so sure, but who knows, I may change my time further down the road.
Im sure I wont want to do bedside nursing my whole life, and I want to get school done and out of the way before I start a family, so I was wondering..
Would it be wiser to get a BSN or an MSN? What different types of jobs does each offer? Also, I consider myself pretty smart and very determined, but I am SO nervous for nursing school. Is getting a BSN or MSN for a normal non-genious possible?? I just feel like that seems so un-atainable from where I am now..
Also, if I do plan on getting at least a BSN, what would be the quickest route?
My current plan is to get into this LPN program in Aug due to the minimal wait time, then go to a CC for my ADN, and then do an ADN-BSN & onto an MSN if I decide I want/need to do that. Would any of you wise nurses who have already done your schooling have any better options?
Thanks for the advice!!
