I am currently enrolled at Harper College in Palatine, Illinois. I am hoping to complete my prereqs there and go in the nursing program that they have to offer. It's a two-year program to become an RN.
My goal is to then get my RN-BSN at one of these two Universities, but I am uncertain as to which one would be better for me. Are there any Nurses, Nursing Students who have made this transfer already. Was it a smooth transfer? Are there things you wish you had known before doing this? What are the pros to getting your BSN like this? What are the cons?
I know Loyola University of Chicago - Niehoff School of Nursing offers an RN/MSN program, whereby students can bypass the BSN and receive credits for previous courses, professional experiences, and take prereq courses for an easy transition into the MSN program.
The requirements for the program are:
-cumulative G.P.A. of 3.0 in nursing courses
-successful completion of the GRE exam,
I am looking for Nurses and Nursing Students opinions on this type of program.
Thanks to all who respond.
