Hello all! I am so happy to be graduating from ADN this week
I am here asking for help regarding pathways to WHNP. I have a job lined up at a SNF (not ideal but have to get some financial load off my husband ASAP). I know for sure I want to further my education but dont know if I should get BSN before MSN...
I hope to work for the next year or so while prepping everything to apply and hopefully find job in L&D or womens services. So is it worth the money to get a BSN to make me more marketable while waiting on getting MSN or do I stick with ADN and the jobs I can get while working on MSN?
Also with 2015 being the year of DNP, how does that effect this decision?
A little background on me that has impact on my decisions are my 2 and 5 year old and my age of 30 also living in South Tx. I do have an amazing support system! Oh and sadly my undergrad student loans are about 50K...I have a Bachelors in Psych
Thank you so much for whatever advice you give, good or bad :-)
