Hi everyone! I wanted to get the opinion of currently practicing RNs and NPs about this topic. Is it in my interest to do an ABSN program instead of a Direct Entry APRN program? I'm asking this question in regards to job prospects, ability to practice responsibly and effectively and general attitude towards NPs who were educated through a Direct Entry program.
My goal is to practice as an Adult Gero Primary Care NP. I'm currently applying to a mix of different nursing programs
: ABSN, BSN/MSN, MDE/DNP. Right now I'm leaning towards the BSN/MSN because I know I could theoretically get my BSN, work and do the MSN part-time while I'm getting real nursing experience.
Just wanted to get some opinions! Thanks : )
