I'm doing pretty well but I just want to gradute asap and make some money.
I've been thinking about applying for BSN at Nursing schools
in several campuses and several others but stumbled upon the idea of
I have almost all of my pre req's finished but with a 3.3 I don't know if
I could get into BSN program.
Any advices? Anything will be very much appreciated.
I really have no clue as to what LPN is and etc...

Quote from mrs.frog
Thats what I said,......................BSN makes more in a management position.
Totally depends on the person/position and facility.
At our hospital ASN and BSN make exactly dime for dime the same as a new grad, then it depends on performance raises. We have plenty of 5 year exp ASNs who make more than some with 5years of exp who have their BSN.
There are "certain" management positions that only hire a BSN, so well they would make 100% more than an ASN, because an ASN could not even apply for the job.
another thing to consider----I believe ~~at least our instructors told us that BSN students have a lower pass rate with NCLEX. Maybe that was just at our school, but I did look my former schools pass rate up online and the ASNs did have a higher pass rate.
Once you have your ASN, you can bridge to your BSN--very desirable programs out there that offer that.
