I graduated from Cal in May and now I'm trying to pursue a path into nursing. Many people are telling me to try for MSN programs but I still have pre reqs to complete because I didn't even consider nursing as a career until the last year before I graduated. To get into the ASN programs that I've looked at I just need to complete Anatomy, Microbio and Speech.
However, some of the entry-MSN programs I've seen required me to take pharmocology, more chemistry and the GREs of course.
It just seems that I will need to spent more time after graduation taking pre-reqs than I have to for an ASN. I want to get work ASAP but I also want to move up and pursue a nurse practioners with time.
Am I being stupid or wasting time by pursuing an ASN instead of trying for an MSN off the bat? I eventaully want an MSN, just I want to work a few years first....Bah I dunno the answer since I don't have any experience with this.
