I'm 26 and currently at Ivy Tech in Indianapolis. I have thought about just applying to this program and getting my ADN, however I would like to keep my options open for Grad School to possibly get my NP. So my current dilemma is do I stick with Ivy Tech get my ADN and then transition over to get my BSN later while I'm working? Go ahead and apply to get my BSN on a traditional track? or I do have the option to do an accelerated program, however this may not be a possibility since my GPA from my first degree is only a 2.6
The reason I am asking this is that I have heard that getting your ADN and then your BSN puts you at a disadvantage...and that these nurses are not as successful in the long run. I'm just trying to put myself on the best track for success and I would love the advice.
