BSN second courser

  1. Good day!

    I just got my degree in linguistics in UP diliman. I will turn 22 this year (2017). I realized that I wanted to take nursing when I was in third year after I experienced a certain 'situation'. I considered shifting to BSN, but I felt guilty about the money I spent during my 3 years in college, so I decided to keep moving forward even if I didnt really like my course.

    Now, I realized that I dont want to regret in future. So, I want to ask advices from this forum regarding schools which accept second courser like me and credit my subjects before. If possible (is it possible?), to finish it within 2-3 years.

    I asked UPM, but unfortunately, they dont accept second courser even if i got my first degree in other UP campus.

    It's doable there are lots of nursing school who takes second courser. Nursing is my second career as well and enjoying it I have been a nurse for 10 years now.

    Hi! We are in the same boat. Got my degree in UP Baguio. I am also looking for schools where I can finish BSN for less than 4 years.

    UPCN and USTCoN doesn't accept second coursers. if you really want to take nursing, a number of schools in metro manila as well as there in Baguio are open for second coursers.

    I feel you. I also want to be a nurse but I already have an education degree & already working. I want to go to school again but I am situated in Mindanao where nursing schools are limited

    Hi! We're in the same situation. I'm currently on my 4th year taking up Marketing. I realized that I really want to be a nurse when I was 2nd year but mu parents told me to just finish this. I was supposedly gonna take BS Nursing before but I was discouraged of the news about the rising unemployment and/or underemployment rate of Nursing. Next school year, I'm planning to take BS Nursing. Did you pursue your second course? If yes, where? Thank you! I would like to study in a school that would only require 2 years
