Hello everyone. My first posting so hang in there...
I have a BA and an MPA and would like to know how a person might go about becoming an RN or BSN without having to retake general ed courses I have already taken??
Can anyone direct me to getting info?
I was in a similar situation and considered doing the accelerated route (which would have meant moving to another state and $$$$$$). However, I applied and went through a local ADN-diploma program. This was the right decision for me--although I certainly had my doubts in the beginning.
As I move forward, I'm hopeful the hospital I work for will pay/contribute towards my BSN education, which, given the previous degrees, should only be a few courses. I plan on looking into University of Phoenix online for my BSN.
The ADN program accepted all of my old general ed classes. I just had to take the sciences.
Hope this helps. Good luck,
