Health Technicians to RN, or BSN


Hello All,

I am planning and making research regarding My nursing career in future. I am considering the field in health technician or Medical social work. I would like to ask which is the best route to nursing? I will be doing social work for 2 years in the school of health tech and later enroll for BSN afterward or health technician for 3 years and later enroll for BSN. Your advice will be highly appreciated. Thanks.

I know this is an old thread, but why are you going to do all of those things before nursing? Social work requires a masters degree in most places which will probably cost around 70 thousand dollars if not more!

If you want to do nursing, just go to nursing school, I would not waste money doing all of those other things or you will be in debt to the point you won't be able to afford to eat!
