ADN-MSN or ADN to BSN to MSN

Hi all! I am in my senior year of an ADN program. My goal is to go back to school for my MSN to be a NP. I am not sure what the best route is, should I bridge into an MSN program or should I go for my BSN and then MSN. I have a five year old, I will have to be working while I do this. Any tips or advice? I would love to hear from someone who has done this or has any ideas about which schools I should look into? Also I have worked as an LNA in LTC since I was 16yrs old (I am 25 now), worked as a medical assistant for 2 yrs, phlebotomy, and I did a externship this summer in an ER. Thank you so much! :rolleyes:

Yes I am. I just finished the bridge portion and I like it a lot. The instructors are great.

How long did it take you, I have a 5yr old and will need to be working as well. Is it doable? How much of a time commitment is it, how many hours a day/week? can it be spread out over a longer period if needed? Would you recommend it over going for a BA then masters? What type of assignments are there. I guess all I want to know is.. everything!!:idea:
