I'm currently finishing my prereq's for nursing school and am looking to enter into an accelerated program summer or fall of 2005. My dilemma: BSN, or BSN/MSN? I know now that I definitely want an advanced degree, but I'm hesitant to pick a BSN/MSN degree program without having some practical experience in my specialty area (I'm strongly leaning toward perinatal or neonatal, but I know that could change). However, I've got the resources now to go for the advanced degree - I'm childless, spouseless, without any huge financial constraints - and I wonder if that will be the case for me in the future.
I'd really love to hear from people who went the accelerated route and which kind of program they chose (BSN, BSN/MSN) and what their experiences were from it, any general advice.
