About a year ago I started to take prerequisites so that I can get into 10 month OLOL Accelerated program. I have already sent in my application. The program starts in Aug or Sept 2010. I won't finish my prerequisites till the end of July. I'm afraid that I might not make it in time and I have sit out for awhile. Therefore I might have to think of options.
I have recently went to Charity School of Nursing open house and have a very good vibe with that school. I like the hands on training and the way they lay out the study material for the students. Only thing is I have to wait till Fall of 2011 since they take application one year in advance.
Someone else recommened that I look into LSU's BSN Care program. I would still have to wait till Fall of 2011 to start.
And now everyone is talking about how it is hard to get a new grad nursing job because of the economy and state cuts and the like.
1.) I should just go to CSN because nursing will pick up and that I will have a less stressful cirriculum. Unfortunately, it'll take me a total of 3 years starting in Fall of 2010 b/c of the one year wait.
2.) Just go to the 10 month program and wing it out in the bad economy. I'll finish quicker this way.
3.) Apply for the LSU RN Care program because the time to complete is almost the same as CSN except I will have a BSN instead of a ASN.
Sorry for the rant, but I would like the hear out what other Nursing or potential nursing students have to say that way I can get over the emotions and make a good solid decision. Thanks in advance!
