Help! ASN wants BSN but has a BA

  1. Hi fellow Nurses. I have a very old BA and an 8 year old ASN but i want to go back to school to get my BSN, MSN and maybe even PhD. I've started looking at on-line places and classroom. i'm 50 soon and think that if I could do most of it on-line that would be great, however, I will be living between Montana and Hawaii. I have travel nursed in four different states but feel ready to settle down and teach. Any suggestions?

    Look at Arizona State University. I am 50+ and just earned mt BSN after having a ASN. It is all on line and they use mixed media. Teachers record parts of class they use wide range of teaching resources. You can call your professors and e-mail them. I was very pleased with all that I learned. Classes are 7.5 weeks long you can do it fast or at a slower pace. We had students from every state and many countries. You must learn APA format but they teach you that.

    Why the BSN? The MSN will be sufficient if you want to work as an NP. What are your career goals? I am not sure the benefit of getting both PhD and MSN, If you want to just teach, why not go for just a PhD or DNP?
