Hello Everyone! I just found your site today. I'm sure it will prove to be very beneficial. I have a couple of questions for you all...you see, I'm in a bit of a quandary. I received my B.A. in English two years ago and I'm in a very unfulfilling job right now. I would like to become a nurse and I've done some investigating into the matter. Here's my dilemma...I already have my Bachelor's degree...so I don't know whether I should go to my local Jr. College and go the Associates route (this will be a quicker route) or if I should get my BSN through the University of Illinois at Chicago. Please give me your opinions on this...I figure since I have a BA already I can become a RN and later pursue my Master's in Nursing. Please help!!!! Thanks in advance!!

Well Hello Bean!
I can't really suggest anyway for you to go, but I am getting my LPN now, will graduate from that in July, then the following May will enter the Assoc. program at my school. Bachelors will come afterwards in the near future.
Just wanted to say welcome and good luck to you either way you go!

Some colleges offer a fast-track to BSN program for those that already have a bachelor's degree in something else. I think it takes about 1-2 years depending on the program. Check your local colleges/universities to find out if they have a similar program.
