Post RN Education...time?

  1. Is it time to start thinking about my post RN education? I'm hoping to take the NCLEX in August, my classes end in JUne and our graduation is in July. I'm thinking now is probably the time to start looking into crossover programs?

    I am graduating from a diploma program but I already have an undergrad degree, I have a BA in Psych and almost all courses for an MS in Psych - was ready to start my thesis when I decided to go into nursing school. So...I'm hoping to find a program that allows me to do RN to BSN/MSN in an online environment for the most part though it doesn't have to be online of course.

    Any ideas for where to look?!

    The University of Phoenix has an online RN to BSN program. That's the route I plan on taking once I finish my ASN.

    If you have a school in mind, check with them. I have a BS in engineering, and was told I don't need another Bachelor's. I will apply to the Master's program after I get my ADN and pass NCLEX.

    Thanks! I'm checking with VCU b/c they do have a program for non BSN prepared RN's. It allowes you to go from BA to MSN as long as you have your RN.

    But it says in the application requirements that you have to take the GRE. Any ideas about that? I hate to take another daggone test LOL! I didn't have to take the GRE before my Psych masters work.
