- 0Apr 5, '13 by deidaHi!! I am new in here and I really need an advice!
I am pursuing right now my Degree in Psychology and hopefully finishing it this December and I am really interested in Nursing too.... But whenI called to a College to get some info, they told me that I need to do ANOTHER Bachelor Degree!!
Can someone please help me out and tell me if there's something shorter that I can do, so I can continue my studies with nursing and complement it with my Psychology Degree... I don't know if there are some courses or something that I can take...
Can someone please help me out with some information ....
Thank you very much!!!

I finished my BA and worked in all nursing pre-reqs so I could go straight to grad school for nursing. No sense in getting an ADN or another bachelor's when you can go straight to MSN.

Why go back when you're completing a BS!Look into an accelerated entry level MSN and finish all the nursing pre-reqs while you are completing your BS.

- 0Apr 6, '13 by zoe92I may be in the same situation (if I don't get into nursing this fall I am going to complete a psych degree). If this happens, I will graduate next year, retake some pre reqs to raise my GPA at a community college & then apply to second degree BSN or direct entry MSN programs. I know many people with prior bachelors who decided to take the community college Associates in nursing route, but I would prefer to get the bachelors.
Here are two links with a list of schools that offer an accelerated second degree BSN or direct entry MSN. Both Arizona & New Hampshire are on it.
Accelerated Second Degree BSN (Bachelor of Science in Nursing) Programs
Direct Entry MSN (Masters in Nursing) Programs
- 0Apr 6, '13 by yedwards42Hi ~ I'd look into accelerated BSN programs or entry level MSN programs. As nursing jobs continue to be competitive, I'd get either a BSN or MSN in Nursing. I'm going into an accelerated BSN (already have my Bachelor's in Health Science) this May which is a one year program. After that, I hope to obtain a nursing position and gain experience (then obtain my MSN or MS degree). Good luck to you!
