this is my first post, so please bear with me
i just recently graduated with a ba in anthropology. when i initially started college i was a pre-nursing major.. during the first two and a half years i finished all the prereq's required for entry into the bsn program (at sdsu). i won't go into the reasons for why i switched, but now since i'm done with undergrad i'm planning on going back into nursing.
i have a few questions:
for a person like me (i already have the prereq's down, about 30 hours of volunteer time and with a 3.3gpa), and :hoping: that i'll be qualified (enough) so i could start applying for programs next year (fall 2010), are there any accelerated/direct msn programs you would recommend? i'm checking out programs in ca, or, wa, nm, az, co, and hi...
would those who have gone through this or currently going through this consider me "qualified enough?" (petty, i know, but i don't know who else i'd be going up against).
in general, is there any advice or suggestions you could give me on making this transition? any possible ways to get more patient care experience?
i'll take any response! thanks for your time, hope this isn't too confusing...
