    Hi!! 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'm not sure where you are, but... I would look into local community colleges for a 2 year program. There are accelerated BSN programs as well that offer another bachelors degree but in an accelerated 1-2 year format.

    Look into an accelerated entry level MSN and finish all the nursing pre-reqs while you are completing your BS. 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.

    i have to look into my collage(arizona state univ) if they have that! I love that idea. My uusband told me the same thing! Why go back when you're completing a BS!

    I 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

    There are plenty of schools every where that have accelerated programs, you just need to have completed a BA or BS. Most take 1-2 years depending. You just need to do some research! Good luck!

    Hi ~ 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!
