Where are you? I have a BS in management from Penn State that I got in 1985. I have finished an AS in Nursing in May 05. Toward the end of my program of study, I found out that I could have done a MSN with just a semester or more of study. (I just went through my papers and of course I can't find the specifics!!) ANYWAYS, I think two things come into play. 1) What are your goals? 2) What are your family constraints?
Your BS stuff should be asset! MANY of my BS courses counted towards prerequisites in the AS degree. For instance, chemistry, psychology, (I had to take developmental psych.) I covered something like 21 credits. A second point here, I recently went to Virginia Commonwealth University to see about completing my BSN so I could consider a MSN. I was advised that because my BS was in science (as opposed to a BA) I only have to take 2 prerequisites to get into the MSN program.
I don't know where you are but check out www.nursing.vcu.edu/is
. There are lots and lots of options for you to get started. Also check out Old Domionion University. Both programs includes lots and lots of flexibility. You still need support with the kids though. Unless you are as walking brain! Doing a Nursing degree is demanding and time consuming. Even if you do not live in Virginia, you can get an idea about what options are out there. Good Luck
