    I'm in my last semester @ Essex County College & I have to take micro this summer, but I don't know what to do next. Now yes ECC has a RN Program, but since I'm taking Chemistry this semester & not last semester I will have to attend ECC RN Program in the evening my desire is Mountainside & I called but I was told they don't accept 101 or 103 Chemistry only 102 & ECC only offers 101 & 103 for there program so I'm taking 101 now. So I called Mountainside again & no one has returned my call so friday I'm going their cause I have a late chemistry @ 2:25 & someone's gonna let me know something. I need direction........also I know I want my RN but after my RN should go for my BSN? & what's the A - N program I think D (goes in the middle of the A & N srry). Need some guidance & I need to get on this right away cause time is ticking again please help me & do anyone know of any Chemistry websites?

    Quannie,

    The ADN is an Associates Degree in Nursing, which is what you will be graduating with should you attend Essex County College's nursing program. Mountainside's program appears to offer both a 4-year BSN program and a diploma in nursing. I am not sure how anxious you are to get started on your nursing career but if you can enter into a BSN program and graduate with a BSN it will open up many more doors for you versus getting an ADN.

    The diploma in nursing is usually a hospital-based diploma. It is offered via a major hospital (like Mountainside Hospital) and can last anywhere from 2-3 years. You train with the affiliated hospital and upon completion, you qualify to sit for the NCLEX-RN exam. Most students continue on working with the affiliated hospital while others move on to other employers. Though, I believe its best to try and find employment with the hospital that issued the diploma as not many other employers are willing to hire NJ grads without at least a BSN.

    If you're fortunate enough to get into Mountainside, try your best to make a great impression with your preceptors so you can gain employment as an RN at Mountainside upon completion of the program. Once you get your foot through that door, you will be good to go.
