accelerated BSN/MSN (part time or full time?)

  1. 0
    Hey everyone,

    I am starting an accelerated BSN/MSN program in May and wanted to get some opinions on doing the MSN portion part time vs. full time. At this point I want to do it full time and be done with school so I can start working. However, the school I am going to suggests that the students complete the MSN part time. I have also talked to a few NP's that strongly suggest I do it part time and work as an RN in order to gain experience so I won't be completely unsure of myself when I'm an NP. What are your thoughts on this? If I do decide to go full time, will I be less marketable because of my lack of experience? Any feedback would be great!!!

    Definitely part time! I'm in the same position as you, and I think we definitely need some RN experience before we become advanced practice nurses! And I do think not having that bedside experience will hurt us in the job hunt, as well as in our future careers.
