    I'm working on my ASN right now and after a few years of working I plan to do a RN to MSN program (since I have a previous bachelor's degree).

    Hey folks, so i thought id get some opinions and viewpoints of people and their educational goals here? who wants to go all the way and get their DNP/Ph.D in nursing? My plan is to go all the way.. one step at a time first step for me is to get either my ADN or BSN then Masters then DNP or go BSN to DNP..
    Like a lot here I'm finishing up my prerequisites (one more semester!) and then applying for my school's ADN program. After that I plan on applying to our local university's RN-BSN program. I'm toying with the idea of an MSN but I'm not positive.

    I want to get my Master's, but I'm not sure in what. You would think that I would go with a MSN, but I can't find any programs that really interest me. What I really want is the dual Master's in Public Health and Informatics. Or a higher level science degree. Not sure what I'm going to do with either of those. I guess I just want to be all analytical. Would be great if I could follow through with a position at Epic, but I need bedside experience. :/

    I think I will pursue my doctorates. I want to see where I can go with all of this education. I want to prove to the world I can succeed. The sky is the limit!!

    I'm just starting an ADN program, but if I make it through I plan on going straight for my RN-BSN at the local university and then I hope to move onto my DNP. My end goal is to become a WHCNP/CNM.

    I'm a recent BScN grad and at the very least I will obtain my MSN. I am still looking into becoming an PHCNP within the community, public health or geriatric sector. I will probably shadow an NP to figure out if it is really something I would like to become. However, as of right now, MSN for sure.

    I graduated with my ADN in May, starting my RB-BSN program monday. I'm getting the BSN b/c many hospitals in the area are either Magnet status or going there

    If I ever went for a MSN, it would most likely be in education because I a) will not be a CNM or CNS or CRNA or NP; working in that capacity is not calling my name and b) I love teaching and the satisfaction of seeing another person understand and comprehend new information is amazing. but thats a pipeline dream that is really not on the horizon right now. Right now my goal is to start (and finish) my BSN and get a job but not necessarily in that order

    I would like to become Nurse Practioner. Right now I'm a prenursing student . Looking to complete my BSN and I will. So I can show my soon my husband that I am not a failure. Most importantly I'm doing it for me and my children. Screw what he thinks. I can drink to that.

    I'm not sure I want to get *quite* to my DNP, but I definitely want to keep going and at least get a Masters/some advanced education.

    I personally hope to follow this career trajectory: Get my ADN. Work in the ER/pediatric ER for a while, become a SAFE nurse or something akin. Work toward my BSN somewhere during that time. Once I get that, pursue the additional certification/education I need to become a forensic nurse (I'm having trouble finding specific information about how to do this).

    Any other forensic nurse hopefuls out there?

    Fearless_leader, I hope your husband is being, you know, supportive and helpfu during your nursing program! He should be nothing but proud of you - we certainly are.

    I am in school to become a LPN. I plan on then doing a bridge my school offers to RN. I was going to stop at my BSN, but I learned that having a BSN does not provide much more of an income, so now I would like to get my Masters in Nursing... just maybe after my kids are grown. I don't want to go to school- forever...
