Need help deciding
- 0Jan 15, '13 by Jgillan6014Hello nurses and hopeful nursing students! I'm a little confused as what to do. I currently attend Skagit Valley College and I'm in the middle of my pre-reqs . As of right now I have a 4.0 GPA and have my CPR license for health professionals. I am trying to decide if I should just complete my Associates or if I should just go for my BSN. Skagit offers a BSN program through Brothell University. I'm 22 years old, about to be 23 and if I was to go for the ADN I would be applying to enter spring 2014. I was hoping for some suggestions.
Also, I've been reading a lot of forums and some of you freak me out! Studying before the quarter starts!? Ack!!
Thanks for the help!

So just think of it this way, even if u don't get it now...eventually you'll probably have to, & it's better to do it now while you're younger w/presumably less responsibilities.
