I am looking at Western University of health science entry level Masters and wanted to get your opinions on whether it is worth it or just go the ABSN route. For their program it is 3 years and you get your bsn and then it is required you work in a hospital for a certain number of hours to get your msn. So theoretically you would graduate with a MSN with a years of clinical experience it looks like. If you then like to become a NP you can apply to their FNP program directly which would be about 4 years.
Now I am interested in nursing, but I would have to say I am also interested in the administration side of things as well. I like options. Would going this route open a lot of doors in the future? or is it better to just go the ABSN route? Tuition is about 100k on their website not including the FNP program. To me it kind of seems that going back school to get another bachelors is disheartening. LIke it was a complete waste of my time. I currently have a bachelors in biology.
Here is their website please take a look before commenting. Welcome - Master of Science in Nursing - Entry (MSN)
