Ok, Im kinda confused. This whole nursing this is new to me (who would have known there are so many different titles to nurses)...My end goal is to make it to be a CRNA. So Im needing help with the logical steps.
Im registering to take my prerequisites in the spring of 08 and should have all of them done by the end of summer II in 08 (total of 10 classes). By then, it will be to late to apply for Fall of 08 nursing school. So what is the next logical step? It will hopefully only be 1 semester off. Do I take classes towards my BSN and have less to do in a fast track ADN to BSN? I figure I can handle another 4-5 classes that would be very useful to my BSN but if I go off the schedule for a fast track plan, is that bad? Can you do a fast track program if you are already ahead?
I hope this makes sense...because Im confused

FGCU in Ft Myers has one and USF as well, I have to work for a minimum of 2 yrs as an RN before I can even apply to the bridge program at FGCU I also have to take a few more general ed classes as well and retake algebra to get rid of that pesky C, they specifically state tho that if you choose the direct entry and for any reason drop out you can not roll over to a BSN, you also have to petition for re-entry if were to drop a class for a 2nd time no matter what the reason, my sil had started out at this program that's how I found out about it however she will not be able to complete it so after the bridge I don't know much other than what is posted on the web http://www.fgcu.edu/chp/nursing/msn.html
I don't have any other option than to ADN as the nearest BSN is almost 2 hours away, that is why I'm investing into what I will need for this MSN program as I want to go the NP/Educator route

Hey Zoo, you want to do a ADN to BSN in Florida and then go work on your masters? The best path is FAU's program, everything is online. They also offer a ADN-MSN educator masters with a BSN and MSN awarded.
