hi- i am starting nursing school in the fall. i have the option to go to a bsn program which is intense or an asn program that is less time consuming. my only concern is that i want to go on and be an np. i've looked into a few online schools that offer asn to msn programs, but i am kind of confused. when a school offers a bridge program once i finish that will i have my msn or will that just prepare me for my msn? money is not a factor in my decision. i just need to figure out the quickest/best way to become a np. can anyone shed some light on this?
