Hey guys, I'm new to these forums and nursing altogether, really. I have a couple of questions, but first a little background information: I'm 19, male, and transferring to nursing school from my second year in a chem engineering program. I was doing well in school but just didn't see myself working in a factory/cubicle for the next 40+ years. I chose to switch to nursing after volunteering with the nursing staff at a hospital for a couple of months
My question: I have the option of doing either a BSN or ADN program. I would start a RN to BSN program directly after the ADN if I were to go that route. I would finish either one in the same amount of time (three years from fall). The advantage of the ADN would be having the RN a year earlier, but I just feel like the BSN route would be more solid. I'm just looking for some general advice concerning this decision.
Post Script: I was also wondering which area of nursing most recent grads start out in. I would like to make my way to the ER, but it's my understanding that it is difficult to start out there.
