I am new to these boards and I will be graduating from Howard University this May with a Bachelor's of Science in Health Sciences. My friend brought it to my attention that I would be eligible to apply to Georgetown and Trinity for an accelerated BSN program (I would have to take microbiology) but I am noticing a trend.
When I do research for NP for Ob/Gyn I am not seeing any programs here in the DC/MD/VA area. Due to the fact that many of the classes I have taken for pre-physical therapy coincide with the pre-reqs for the acclerated BSN programs it wouldn't be an issue for me to follow one of my dreams.
Can any of you point in the right direction as to what schools I should be looking at that will allow me to become a NP in OB/GYN? Furthermore, is it a guarantee that hospitals will pay for your schooling as a nurse? I see and hear so many stories about nurses who are getting their education paid for as long as they contract with the hospital?
Any information will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance
