Hello hive mind! I've decided I want to switch careers and be a nurse. Yay! 

That's the good news. The bad news is that I majored in English and Art like 20 years ago. So I have allllll the humanities and none of the science. 

If you were in my place, would you get an accelerated ADN or an accelerated BSN? I am in Michigan, btw. 

ADN pros:

-Lots of clinical experience (this is the biggest one).



-There are lots of online bridge programs to get the BSN after I'm working.

BSN pros:

- I'll be DONE once I have the degree, and not need a bridge program from ADN to BSN.

- I won't be going to school and working full-time.

- I might be hired easier.

- I'll make more money (potentially, esp. through advancement opportunities).

Any advice you want to shoot my way would be wonderful!
