So I just started my BSN as a transfer student at a university thats 20 mins away which costs 11k annually (FT). I will be part time until Fall 2014 so its not that bad as I'll graduate in 2016.
Well, the dilemma Im going through right now is that I am second guessing if I should have applied to CCs?! Honestly, both are 40+ mins away
and of course cost less so I could pay it off every semester. Those are the only benefits.
I dont need pre-reqs and all and I will graduate in the same timeline except at the BSN, I'll graduate with 30k in debt (which is what is freaking me out)
I know I'll be able to pay it back asap but the thought of having debt outside of my mortgage is a bit daunting.
btw Im working at a Magnet hosp and although they prefer BSNs, being internal might
creat an exemption
What do you guys think?

Oh sorry. I read "I work at a Magnet Hospital" and thought you were already an RN. My bad.
In 2007 I was one of the last ADNs hired by a large ATL metropolitan Magnet hospital. I would say talk to HR and see what they think about getting your ADN first. Perhaps you can set up some kind of contract to do ADN then roll into your BSN completion? However, even with a BSN any kind of internal connections may not pan out either
