Just one thing to add. You can get your ADN (2years..Associate Degree in Nursing) and go to work and get your BSN as you work if that is what you decide to do. There are lots of programs available now that let you fit schooling into your schedule, and some even offer many classes over the Net.
OK, 2 things to add! You will see as you go thru nursing school
and go thru all the different areas what you are most interested in and can go from there. If you go the ADN route, there are all the other classes you must also take...Anatomy and Physiology, Interpersonal Relations (speech)
and lots of basics. It is very tough to take them all along with the nursing classes, and
almost impossible to work full time and take all the classes. Some ADN RNs got a lot of the prerequisites out of the way first, for one year, or at least quite a few of them, then went to nursing, adding up to 3 years.
It is not impossible to do it in 2, just lots of work, especially if you have a life!!!!
Good luck!!!!!!!!! Nurseyperson
