Hi.So I am currently a third year student in college, and I am planning to graduate Spring 2013. I am looking into nursing schools and there are a lot of options. I can either get a second bachelor in nursing or go through a direct entry to MSN. What do you guys recommend? My ultimate goal is to become a nurse practitioner. It is very competitive here in CA to get into a nursing school. What do you guys recommend in doing to make myself stand out and more competitive in the selection process??
