Looking for a nursing program

  1. I graduated in 99' with a BA in art, and have finally come full circle from my original goals as a freshman in college to work in the health sector. I'm now interested in returning to school to get a BSN and move forward with an MSN and hopefully become an FNP.

    I've been researching schools and there are a couple that have combined BSN/MSN programs, or just accelerated BSN(because I already have a BA). Is there any school anyone would suggest?
    I've lived in CA my whole life, and I'm interested in going to school in the midwest or the east. I've really been looking at UNC-Chapel Hill. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks for your help

    University of Maryland, Baltimore has a BSN/MSN for those with a previous degree. It's a good school if you don't mind Baltimore.

    midwest huh

    How about missouri? Yeah, our weather sucks, there are not many beaches, but I attend the top school in the midwest (according to Money Magazine), and I would be EXTRA happy to tell you anything and everything about Truman State.

    Let me know!

    Well I am in Kansas City, Missouri which is in the midwest. I don't know if you heard of Kansas City but the Whole metro has a population of over 400,000 it is not a really huge city but it is big enough. Although I am in a traditional BSN program I do go to a school that offers an accelerated nursing program that takes one year but it is pretty expensive that is the only bad thing about it. It is a really good program though.

    Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN offers a 2 year Bridge MSN for previous degree students . You complete basic pre-reqs before attending. You cover generalist nursing courses and clinicals the first year, this includes the summer. Specialist NP courses, clinicals and the NCLEX your second year, including the summer. They have a good FNP program. I'm in the generalist year right now. I will be an acute care NP when I graduate in 2003. You can check them out on the web. They are also really good about financial aid.
