ABSN or ELMSN?Register Today!
- by eminthesr Apr 14, '11Hello!
I will be applying to nursing school's for an accelerated program. I am still undecided if I should do an Accelerated BSN program and work a few years and then go for my Masters, or if I should do an Entry Level Master's degree.
Does anyone have any advice/input?

If you are looking for a program in your general area, I encourage you to apply to both. Admissions to ASBN and ELMSN programs are both highly competitive. I know of many programs that receive 8-10 applications for every open space in their program. Look at the admissions requirements and prerequisites (they may be very similar for both types of programs). Apply for both types of programs, and then see who offers you admissions. Then make the most appropriate choice for you and your goals.
If you are open to move anywhere in the US and have unlimited financial resources, then consider your goals first ---- and then apply for the programs that would enable you to reach those goals.
