I'm a soon-to-be nursing student in an ADN program with a prior bachelor's degree in an unrelated field. After completing my ADN, I'm seriously
considering the pursuit of an online MSN, as some programs admit students with bachelor's degrees in any field.
So, can anyone share reasons against going the ADN-MSN route that bypasses the BSN altogther? (The programs I am looking into do not award a BSN along the way.) Aside from preventing entry into most nurse anesthesia programs, are there any other drawbacks? My main concern is keeping the option open to move to Ontario, Canada, where a BSN or equivalent is required for entry to practice nursing. (I live near the Canadian border.) I would imagine that an MSN would be acceptable as an "equivalent" there, but I've been told otherwise. Can anyone shed some light?
I look forward to hearing any thoughts. Thanks in advance!
