I am new to this forum. I currently hold a Bachelors in Business Admin and have been employed in the financial industry in NYC for 5 plus years. I have wanted to go into nursing for the past year and would like to finally take the plunge. I have a few questions I was hoping some of you would kindly help me with:
1. How difficult is it to get into ADN programs in NYC? I am looking at information at some of the CUNY and other community colleges but did not know how hard it would be to enroll.
2. Is it realistic to get a job as an RN in NYC with only an ADN. I know many 'good' hospitals probably require a BSN but is this mandatory yet? Due to time and money issues, I would like to go for my ADN and then do an RN to BSN program.
3. Also do I have any advantage that I already have a Bachelors (even though it's in a totally different field)?
4. Should I do my science pre-reqs first before applying to these schools
? I took sciences in college 10 years agao and from what I've been reading, many schools require the sciences to be taken 5 yrs ago or less.
Any help would be greatly appreciated...thanks in advance!
