I'm in my mid 30's in planning to change careers to nursing. I have a master`s degree in Spanish. I'd like to get into the profession as soon as possible and eventually obtain an MSN. Other than my Psychgology undergraduate degree, I have no background in medicine and have not yet completed any courses that would count as prerequisites to a nursing program.
Could someone please help me weigh the pros and cons for the following two scenarios?
A: Do an LPN program, which I could complete in a year. Find employment as an LPN and then work on an LPN to BSN bridge program, with the eventual goal of working towards on MSN
B: Do a longer program that would give me a an ADN , and then work towards my MSN after finding employment as an RN.
