I am a second degree seeking student wanting to go back to school to become a nurse. My two options are 1) Get my ADN and take the exam to become an RN. THEN Complete an Online RN to BSN Program WHILE working full time. or2) Shoot for an Accelerated BSN (main program I am looking at is 12 months of intense work)Advice on the two methods? I have no experience in a hospital setting which is where I would eventually like to end up. With the ABSN the program is around $35,000 plus supplies, books etc and I cant work during that 12 month period - so I will have no income. With the ADN - the program is Fall/Spring/Fall/Spring (2 years). I will have summers off and I will actually not be full time each semester because I do have some classes already complete. SO I could work part time in this program and apply for a full time RN position after I take the NCLEX exam. Ill have 2 years of part time work under my belt by then. Advice? Thanks!
