Bridge to Masters Program or Second Bachelors?

Nursing Students School Programs


Hi Everyone,

I'm looking for a little advice on what the next step in my education should be. I'm currently in an ADN program and plan to graduate this spring. I already had have a bachelors of science from 2007 and am debating going for a second bachelors and then on to a NP or skipping that step and going into a bridge program into the masters. I can't find any bridge programs at a state university and want to avoid going to a "diploma mill." Eventually i'd like to get a NP in acute gerontology, just not sure what the best way to get there is.

Any tips?

Welcome to AN! Check with your state BON website for a list of approved schools- advanced practice programs should be included on the list. Then, you can work from there to see if any of them require a BSN or will accept any nursing degree.
