Hi,

I have my ADN and 5 years experience. I'd like to move on and get my BSN, MSN and eventually FNP and/or DNP.

I'm looking for a reasonably priced, fully online, and fully accredited program that can get me there as quickly as possible. I've heard about RN to MSN "bridge" programs that take you from an ADN to BSN and on to MSN in a short time by combining courses so you're not duplicating things or taking courses you don't need. From experience, if you don't look at the entire picture, you can get led down the wrong path by college counselors..... You end up taking courses you don't need or bypassing courses you actually need. It would be nice if some of the courses filled more than one degree requirement.

Any help or experience people can share would be awesome! Thanks!

TheCommuter, BSN, RN
