I need some advice - I've been thinking about this for months trying to make a decision and I think I'm going to drive myself crazy! I am going to apply to nursing school (the sooner the better) but I am torn between going for an Accelerated BSN from somewhere like Baylor (or UTA, etc.) or getting my ADN at Brookhaven or El Centro. They each have pros and cons obviously... it seems like it would be smart to get my BSN out of the way now (since my long term plan is to get it anyway) but it would take me a while to get all the pre-reqs done (my Bachelor's is totally unrelated, so I'm missing a lot of the science and math... I'm reluctant to spend so much time and money getting pre-reqs done) and it's insanely expensive so I'd be in a ton of debt coming out of school. Brookhaven or El Centro would obviously be a lot less expensive but I'm not sure I'd be as employable since I've heard hospitals are looking for BSNs more and more. Just to be clear, I'm not asking for advice on ADN vs. BSN (I know that topic has been debated to death) but about which path seems like it makes more sense in this situation. Any insight y'all have on this would be appreciated. Thanks!!
PS - not that this has any bearing on my decision, but I read in a post from a few years ago that Brookhaven students wear white scrubs... anyone know if that's still true?
