Hi everybody, I am having a difficult time making a decision. I have a previous Bachelor's Degree with student loan debt balance about 65K after all the interest. I am set on going back for nursing...but I am very uneasy about accruing more debt. I want to do this accelerated 12 month BSN in my area...but it would probably put me up to close to 90K in debt! The good thing about that is it is quick, I would have the BSN, and I could get to working and making income. Then I would want to have my employer pay for my NP (which is probably my ultimate goal). I am also trying to get into one of the local community college ADN programs because it would be sooooooo much cheaper and I could later get the BSN online through a bridge program maybe paid by my employer. The problem is community colleges have long wait lists and they would take 2 years once in. So I do not know if I would benefit more just going for that ABSN and working sooner or do MORE waiting as usual and try for the ADN eventually. How are all you RNs doing paying student loans? Am I crazy for getting into this much debt? HELP!
