Hello, I just recently graduated with my ASN, passed boards and will be starting a residency position next month. However, I really want my BSN, and then my MSN. Is it to soon to think about going back to school? How long did some of you guys wait before going back? I have looked at several programs, two that will allow me to begin taking classes in October...What do you guys think?

I just graduated with my ADN in May, passed boards this month, and started a BSN program this week. I say go for it if you're ready!!

I started my BSN program two weeks months after passing the NCLEX. :) As long as you can handle your residency + school, you should be fine!

I say do it now before you get too comfortable not being in school. The worst that could happen is you decide you really need more time off and just take a leave of absence/withdraw. :)

I just graduated with my BSN (after changing majors at the last second and going back to school for 3 more years). Now that I'm out, I got itchy to go back and will be returning to school this Fall, and will start grad school in January.

Thanks for the replys. The two programs that I can begin in October are Chamberlain College of Nursing or Jacksonville University. Both are very expensive, but both are online which I love! If I go now I will still qualify for financial aid......Have you guys heard anything about either program good or bad? Again thanks for the info. :nurse:

I graduated from Chamberlain in June. Loved the program, but not the price tag. :) I had some good reimbursement and a scholarship, which helped! Good luck in your decision.

Hi Lunah. If you don't mind me asking...how long did it take for you to complete your BSN?

Started in October 2008, graduated in June 2010. Less than two years, seriously part-time. I only doubled up on classes a couple of times.
