Hello! I am taking the plunge and changing my career and going into nursing , which I wanted to do always. I always had. I need your expertise, I am 32 and obviously do not have the luxury to be in school for a long time. What would I need to do? I hear do not go to state u because the pass rate ain't very good. I heard Kanawha Community is fair. First of all do I need to take any course before my BSN? I have read that I need to take my preRecs. And what is a ADN? I heard both ADn and BSN can get you ready for the exam for being an RN. Do I need to take the extra 2 years? Or can I just go straight to the BSN? My goal is to be a NP. Thank you I. Advance for your priceless advice.
