I am a pre-nursing student and am really struggling about making a decision as to what to do. I was in the LPN program and decided that I wanted to move where their was more opportunity because i was living in a very small community. So, I decided to go to a state college from the tech college and am unsure now if i made the right decision in some aspects anyway. I never realized when I moved just how hard it is to get into the bachelors nursing program. I did apply anyway in June, I made it this far I figured there was no point in giving up now. But I'm not sure what to do if I don't get in. Should I move back to where I was and go to the tech college to get my ADN or should I keep trying to get into the BSN program? In some ways I feel like I would be wasting time if I stayed where I am now and kept trying to get in. I'm really confused. Please help!! Thanks.

Try applying to different programs in your old and new area, then after getting the results of whether or not you got accepted to each school you can decided if you are going to move or not...Although I didn't apply to any programs outside my area, I applied to three programs, a 4 year BSN university, an accelerated 2 year program and a no tuition LPN program ...being I was unemployed, I was tied on funds and therefore decided not to apply to some of the private 2 year programs....so definitely apply to different programs before decided whether or not to move

It depends on what you want to do. Would you rather stay where you are for a while and earn a more advanced degree or go somewhere else and earn a lesser degree but get to become a RN sooner? It's all up to you. But if money's tight I would go for the ADN I guess. You probably won't spend as much money because it's a shorter program and you will still become a RN. You can always go to a RN-BSN program after you get a job as a nurse if you want a more advanced degree that will allow more opportunities for growth in your career.

I did look into applying to other schools but every school requires different pre reqs and the application deadlines are all different and it seemed like they are more apt to admit students who are attending the college.
