OK, I am wondering what most of you would do if you were put into the situation that I am in right now.
This fall I will start with the prereqs for nursing for the ADN program. This college picks 80 students a year out of 140 (I believe) for their nursing program. In the area I have 3 other schools
to apply to so in all I will be able to apply to 4 nursing programs
or so I thought! Yesterday, after doing some research I found 2 out of these 4 schools do not offer the Associates Degree, but only Bachelor's. So that only leaves me with two schools to apply to, the one I am at now and a technical College. At this point the technical College will be probably not even work because their waiting list is a mile long. If I am able to apply in 2011, their waiting list will be around 2013 or later. On the other hand if I did go for my bachelor's I would have 4 nursing schools to apply to plus if you count the technical college that is 5 colleges total.
I have no idea what to do. I really wanted my ADN and with 4 kids I can only go part-time. If I go part-time for the ADN I will be able to apply in 2011, but if I go part-time for my Bachelor's it will be even longer. So what would you do....carry on and get the ADN and hope I get in right away or go for the Bachelor's?
