I am currently a senior in high school. I want to go into the nursing field, and then I would like to enter the Navy. I am, however, struggling to decide on the right path to get there. I don't have a lot of money, so I was considering going to Front Range Community College first, then transferring to University of Northern Colorado, or another 4 year university. After receiving my bachelors in nursing, I would like to enter the Navy. My goal is to get my BSN in as little time as possible without being insanely in debt.
My confusion occurs when trying to figure out how much time I will have to spend on waiting lists and trying to get into these nursing programs! Sorry if this is a lot.
I quess my main question would be asking for advice on whether to go straight to a university, or community college then transfer. And also, about how much time does it take to get through nursing! I really want to go into nursing, but so many people tell me stories of the years they spent on waitlists or those who gave up the idea of nursing completely! It makes me second guess my desire to even try to be a nurse.
Any kind of advice or answers that any one can give would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you so much!
