So an idea I have been pondering for a while is this... (I'm a junior in high school btw.)
I go to my local community college and get my ADN then work at a local hospital over the summer. Then the next semester apply for a RN-BSN program. Go to school for my BSN while working, saving money, and gaining experience. I'm not 100% sure if I want to be a nurse- so would it be better to get my ADN so I know if its something I would like to continue?
I want to do this because I want to go to a university in my town that is very inexpensive but only offers a RN-BSN option.
I eventually want to get my DNP so I can be a NP (if I want to continue with nursing)
(Oh and I don't want to be a CNA or a LPN).
Are there any flaws to this? Any advice? Is this good in terms of cost?
