It is easier to bridge into the PA program as an RN than it is to bridge over to an RN program as a PA.
The time to become a PA is shorter if you are already an RN.....Last edit by sirI on Sep 10, '05

As Suzanne stated, the PA program does not require BSN, but, does require a bachelors...... which can be the BSN.I thought that all PA programs now require a bachelor's degree in some discipline. It does not have to be nursing. So if you do not have a bachelor's, you would not be accepted.
An ADN prepared nurse with another 4 year degree can go to the PA program and usually completes the program in less time......
