I am new to the nursing community. I have made the decision to transition out of teaching into nursing, and my family and I are ecstatic. My question is, how do working adults earn their BSN? I've got a family and a mortgage and need to work while in school. I have found a couple of online schools
that offer clinicals on the weekends, which is great. But there are only a few... I have noticed there are TONS of RN to BSN programs available online, but very few BSN programs for non-nurses. I will apply to the few schools that work, but I am wondering if earning an associates, passing the NCLEX, and then getting my RN to BSN online should be my fallback option in case I am not accepted by the BSN programs? I already have my MA so I'd opt to not get my associates if I don't have to! Any insight is highly appreciated as I work through this... Thanks!
