Ok so right now I am starting fall semester as a freshman. BIOLOGY MAJOR.. I want to do nursing 99% so i it better to get my biology degree then go to an accelerated nusing program? or should I go to LIU nursing program for 4 years. Does an accelerated student get a job like the LIU nursing program student? I want to get my bio degree because maybe I will change my mind and go to PA school etc... or is the liu nursing school better? do they get the same jobs? I NEED HELP!

Nursing and PA are totally different paths. You are going to have to decide. One won't half buy the other...

I know that, my main question is about the accelerated program.Do I get a job same as the 4 year BSn students

For many entry level positions, yes, BSN ~ ADN. However, you will likely want to look at a BSN if you want to advance in nursing.

Im not talking about an Associates, Im talking about a ACCELERATED BACHLERS DEGREE IN NURSING, its a 15 month program that gives you your bachlers ... its not associates so im asking if that degree will get me the same job as a student in a nursing program for 4 yearss

I think you might get more responses if you phrase your questions in a more polite way.

I'm not a nurse (yet) so I'm not the expert, but I am looking into tons of nursing schools and am 93% sure you can't get into an accelerated BSN program unless you already have your associates degree in nursing. That's why it's accelerated -- you've already done a lot of it. Again, nursing graduates can correct me if I'm wrong.

Okay, so you are asking if a BSN is ~ to a BSN? Assuming your programme of choice is accredited, I think the answer to your question should be quite intuitive and obvious.

No, accelerated BSN programs are for people who already have a BA or BS in another subject (not nursing). Because they have already completed all the general education requirements for a BS degree, the accelerated program consists of just the "pure" nursing content (didactic and clinical) of a traditional, 4-year BSN program, but crammed into a shorter period of time (typically 12-18 months, depending on the program, as far as I'm aware).

There are also BSN completion programs for diploma or ADN grads who are already licensed RNs to take just the courses necessary to complete a BSN degree, but those are v. different from an accelerated BSN program. (Confusing, isn't it??? :D)

My question is I get my BSN in 15 months - other students that decided they want to do nursing right away were in a program for a couple of years for example LIU nursing school. I know I get the same degree but do hospitals look at those students as a first choice.

Not typically and the fact that you will have two degrees, a biology and nursing degree will most likely be a great asset.

You got me :) So the accelerated BSN PROGRAM is it good of a use as the 4 year bsn
