I am a senior and will graduate in May 2014 with a BSBA in human resource management. My heart is in healthcare though. I do not want to pursue another Bachelor's degree unless necessary.
Anyone else been in the same boat? How does financial aid work with already having earned a bachelors in something else? I was thinking maybe an associates in nursing ( and then becoming an RN) or respiratory therapy, but haven't decided yet.

Unless you have 50k+ to spend for the accelerated BSN, I would say associates is the way to go and then a cheap quick RN to BSN like western govenors.
$50k ????? I am in an accelerated BSN program at a state university and it will cost me $20k+ books/uniform.
It would have taken me longer to go the ASN route (my gen ed credits are too old for them) than the ABSN route, plus hospitals are preferring BSN new hires or BSN within 5 yrs of hire.
Associate's= 4 semesters of nursing classes
Accelerated BSN= 4 semesters of nursing classes
