What next? (After my ADN)

  1. Hello fellow nurses! I am graduating in May '13 with my ADN and I'm starting to do some research on what to do next. I know that I want to immediately start a part time BSN program after I pass NCLEX and land a job. I have been trying to do some research on the costs, prereq's required, etc. My ADN program does offer an online program that would end up costing me about $14,000. I'm going to apply to this program but I'm still looking for better or other opportunies. I want to make sure that I get the best value! When I start searching online for RN-BSN programs I just get overwhelmed. Every college also wants to sign you up on their email list to bombard you with emails and they seem to beat around the bush as to their program cost. My "life plan" in a dream world would be to obtain my BSN and eventually get my MSN to become a nurse educator. Does anyone have any suggestions on where to start looking? Has anyone really enjoyed their online BSN program and they would like to share their experience? Also, I have only ever been a full time student. How does financial aid work when you are enrolled part time in an online program? Am I going to have to put more of my out of pocket $$ into it, or does it generally cover it? Any input would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi Blue4me2,
    I was seriously thinking about enrolling in Wilmington's online MSN program.
    Can you kindly share with me your experiences with their RN to BSN program?
