Ok, this may sound like a silly question. But I currently work full time as a trainer with a private practice group. I have a B.A. and a M.S. and I am now wanting to enter the nursing field. I have two options for this:
-Option One- Do a BSN program as a transfer student during the nights and weekends and continue working full time. This will allow to pay my mortgage, keep health insurance, etc. But this way will take me three years (approx) to complete. This school requires a ton of "extra" classes like religion, etc.
-Option Two- Do a direct entry MSN program and after 16 months I could take the NCLEX and start working. I would have to take out loans obviously to pay the bills during this time and I'm not sure about the health insurance option. This program is a CNL program and I'm aware that this role is not yet clearly defined and I'll start off pay as the same as a BSN or ADN.
What would you suggest??
