I am Amanda, I go to Arizona State University. I am technically about to enter my second semester as a Junior, but I am able to graduate with my B.A. in Sociology and a Minor in Family and Human Development in the fall of my Senior year. I have recently decided that Nursing is a career that I really want to enter into. I would change my major but I am technically finished with all my major requirements, its only the graduation requirements that I need.
I am trying to research schools and pathways into the nursing field. I need 30 credits left to graduate ASU and each of those are electives. My plan is to use those electives and take the pre-requirements that I've seen most nursing school require (Nut., Anatomy&Phys., ect...). I've heard that ASU is one of the best nursing schools in the state and that it is very competitive. My cum. GPA is 2.89 so there is no way that I can get into that program.
From what I have research most BSN programs at Universities are very competitive so I was thinking of getting my Associates first (at a community college), getting my liscense (that way I can also start bringing in an income), then going through to a BSN program, followed by a MSN program. My question is, is that a good plan or should I skip the whole associates then BSN
? I know that I eventually want my Masters. So I do not know if I'll be wasting my time.. Please can anyone give advise???
I feel as though I am burnt out on school but I think that it has to do with the degree I am in and the fact that I really wanted to go out of state for college and never did. I don't want to go to through another solid 4 years of school, that is why I like the idea of my associates first. Or an accelerated program...
