I am really confused about my situation and meeting with a counselor was a bad idea (she was about 25, talked like a valley girl, and clearly had no knowledge of my career path). I started my general education (transferrable AS) at a junior college in california. I only have about 15 units left to complete it, but my husband decided to join the army and we got stationed here in the middle of Kansas. The counselor I met with on post told me that my credits were not transferrable to another junior college because they are from a different state. This made NO sense to me. So I asked about finishing my units online through my California college, receiving my AS and transferring to a university here. She then explained that my degree would not be transferrable to a university outside of California! Since beginning my general Ed I have decided on a career. I am going to become an NP specializing in OBGYN. So my first step, as far as I know, would be receiving my BSN. However, i am now extremely confused on how to get it. Will I have to start all over or once I receive my AS(one way or another!) will I be able to transfer into a BSN program at a university? Also, I read somewhere that I would have to be a midwife, not a NP. Is that true because I do not want to be a widwife. I want to be a nurse practitioner, specialize in OBGYN and work either with a physician in an office or have my own practice. Any advice or assistance would be GREATLY appreciated.
