I have some questions I hope some of you can help me with.
I am starting to actively look into Nursing as a career.
I have a B.S. in Exercise Science from Oklahoma State and graduated about 2 years ago.
Here are some questions...
***What is the best route to take for someone in my situation? I have about a 2.9 GPA and will need to take at least 1 (microbiology) class to be considered for most BSN programs.
***Is it worth it to take a couple of my classes over to boost my GPA or go the LPN-RN route?
***Would you consider the MSN route a good choice? I don't really have any clinical experience except for an internship I did at the Cooper Clinic.
***What is your take on cost vs. return for these routes?
***Are there scholarships for Males pursuing a nursing career?
***I will probably look in Texas, as I currently live here, which programs have the most respect in the working world?
***Is distance learning a good idea for someone in my position?
Feel free to enlighten me on these and any other points you feel may be important. Thanks in advance!
