I realized, way too late, that I should have pursued a degree in nursing, like i wanted to do my first year in college. You can take the time off, and start saving money and pay for school that way, it;s better than loans, take it from someone who owes Uncle Sam over 100k.
- Nov 29, '12 by lagalanurseI agree that it doesn't seem so bad in Louisiana. Many of my classmates have jobs lined up already. And I know many ASN nurses that have also easily gotten jobs.
- Nov 29, '12 by x_factorA lot of ADN graduates are landing jobs just as easily as BSN grads are here in Louisiana. I know quite a few ADN grads who had jobs lined up in hospitals before they even passed their NCLEX. So BSN is a priority in some area's, but at the moment down here, the degree really doesn't make a huge difference at all. ADN or BSN both are able to get jobs fairly quickly and easily.
- Nov 30, '12 by man-nurse2bRT jobs are in demand depending on what state you checking, it varies. If your long term goal is to definitely be a PA , you do not have to be an RN first. You can get a bachelor in health sciences or pre-med to meet a BAS requirement, since you already did many of these courses your classes should transfer to that major and take a short vocational course that can get you the health care experience such as PCT or EMT both of these are not expensive and probably a good place to start off your experience in the medical field.It seems like you need some career guidance talk to someone at yr college. I myself was indecisive about PA or nursing in the end I decided nursing was better because I eventually want to be a nurse practitioner and as an NP I can work under my own license.
