I have had a bachelor degree major in English from a Chinese university, and now I want to become a nurse. I noticed there are several path to become a nurse, but can not decide which one best for my situation, hope anyone can give me some suggestion,thanks!
1. Accelerated Program: it only takes one year to complete which is great, but I heard it's quite competitive to get a space for most university. And since i never studied in US, I am not sure whether the course will be too overwhelmed for me
2. 4 years traditional Program: It's a easier way to get a BSN Degree, but that means it is a bit too long for me since I hope I can get to work earlier to help to support my family
3. Community school: I found a Community school offer 2 year ASN program, and I think if I will continue study RN-BSN program after that, so that I can finally get a BSN degree. And one thing I especially want to ask is why people choose traditional program instead of this one, since this one is cheaper any you can work after 2 years and also you can apply RN-BSN program later to get BSN ?
4. I recently also found the Community scholl has some transfer program, not very clear about the difference from the 4 years traditional program
Thanks for anyone taking your time to read and I will be very appreciate if you can leave some suggestion for me! Thanks
