Hi everyone. I've been browsing, and finally decided to come out of lurking! I'm a 34 yr old (just turned 34 a week ago!) mom that is going to be starting nursing school this Fall semester. I have been raising my four kiddos (3 in school), and have decided to get my butt in gear and get a career....I have a few questions for you....I hope you can answer them. Since being accepted in the RN program, i have had people ask me which dept. will i work in when i graduate? I have no idea!:uhoh21: How do you know while in nursing school which dept will be best suited for you? And when you do your clinicals, do you have to "pick" which dept to specialize in? I really dunno
....and also, I am 3 general classes away from getting my AA degree, also, and I would like to get my BSN eventually...could you fill me in on the pros and cons of having an RN associates degree vs. a RN bsn degree? Is there much of a pay increase or ???
Thank you for those that answer me...sorry if I sound nieve (sp?) in any way, this is all so new to me....
