I work at a home health company and I am a new grad (graduated in May, passed NCLEX in June, got my first job June 21st) and I am working full time 8-4 M-F, I have a 5 year old, a husband, a life, the whole nine yards.... I have all my pre-reqs and can get my BSN in two semesters from a university here but I will have to take a full load. 4 classes in fall, 5 in spring and one summer elective and graduate August 2014. I have been told by coworkers that I will not need a BSN for home health, but I do want to get it, I am just wondering if I should do it in 2 years rather than the one? It will cost me $4000 out of pocket for all the classes and books after my scholarship so I am trying to weigh my options. I would like to eventually get my MSN, but I am at a new job, trying to learn the ropes and I am afraid that adding a full load will kill me, but then I don't want to drag it out either. Its all online... has anyone done the RN-BSN in a similar situation and time period? Was it worth it?
