    I do not see why not.....

    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.....

    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.

    You must have at least a Bachelors in another field then, the PA program does require a four year degree.

    Sorry for any confusion. As Suzanne stated, the PA program does not require BSN, but, does require a bachelors...... which can be the BSN.

    An ADN prepared nurse with another 4 year degree can go to the PA program and usually completes the program in less time......
