I know I'm a young one, but I'm hoping to get some advice. ^_^
I'm a high school senior, and it's getting about time to apply to
colleges in California. My goal is to become an RN for now, and I've been doing
some research. For a long time, I've always wanted to go to UCLA,
and I've felt it was the perfect school for me. The problem is,
I recently found that UCLA only offers an RN-BSN program.
I just wanted to know what my options are.
Should I forget about this school and look for a college that does offer
a 4 year BSN?
Would it be possible to go through a 2 year ADN at a community college
and immediately transfer? If so, would it still end up to be 4 years of school or longer?
And lastly, would it be possible to become an RN without getting a BSN, but with another major like biology? How would I go about doing this?
I just really want to make the right decision, and I'm hoping anyones
advice will help. Thanks a lot!!
