  6. UIC Graduate Entry Program
    Yes, all specialties are eliminated. What might happen is that you will get your MSN and sit for the NCLEX-RN. Hence, why I mentioned it will be a generalist-MSN program. Then you can work or...

  8. Help: Adn->bsn / absn / adn->msn
    I would also say don't go the ADN route. You can't bank on being able to get experience if you do ADN before you enroll in a BSN or MSN program, so why not at least go the ABSN route or Direct Entry...
