I am currently working fulltime and not sure how im going to pay for living expenses once I have to quit my job to go back to school. I have applied to one accelerated BSN program which is pretty expensive and an associates degree program which costs a lot less. Im just wondering which one will benifit me most in the long run, pay more and help me move up in the hospital. Some people tell me to just get the associates degree and then the hospital will pay me to get my bachelors. I just want to make the right decision and not be in debt forever! Does anyone have advice on what degree is the best and how to pay for living expenses while going to nursing school?
