I need help people! im an LPN and I wanna go back to school to get my bsn i found out that excelsior college has an online program to get your associates in as little as 3 years part-time which means (im thinking anyway) that i could probably get it in as little as 2 years!!! Heres where the question comes in.....Doesnt it make sense to do the online program and get my associates degree because in as little as 2 years i could be working as an Rn in a nursing home at least and while working I could continue on to get my Bachelors degree......If i go to school and go straight for the BSN in two years time i still wouldnt be able to take the NCLEX for RN right? or wrong? HELP ME PLEASE!!!!!!!
