I think you made the right choice. However, you should probably explain exactly what happened in your cover letter the next time or two that you apply for a nursing job. People doing the hiring will almost certainly agree that you made the right choice -- but they won't know the circumstances of your short-term job unless you tell them. They may make wrong assumptions and mis-judge you if you don't explain it.

Stop being too hard on yourself.

You made the right decision for your family and your career. You got a scholarship for free, you get your BSN without having to payback loans, or sign a contract with hospital.

Future employers are not going to punish you because you decided to get your BSN.

Are you kidding me? You are young and have full scholarship to get your BSN. You have made the best choice to resign and to advance yourself. When you come out with your BSN, you will have a great future :) don't beat yourself up!!

Lookforward,

I find it so ironic that you chose that name, and yet in many of your posts you seem to be second guessing yourself. Don't give this another thought, you did the right thing for you at this time in your life!

Stop beating yourself up about it, trust in yourself and your abilities. Be careful of looking for so much reassurance from others,

believe in yourself

I don't understand why it would take 2 years after getting your ADN to get your BSN. You can do that online while you work. Is it a special program?

Do as well in your BSN program as you did in your AD; and they might be offering you full scholarship towards your MSN/PHD degrees! Obviously you are smart as heck, so run with this, and pretty soon you could be known as DOCTOR Nurse!

Congratulations and best of luck!

Don't ever think getting more education will ruin you, even if you had to quit your job to accomplish it. Congratulations! Don't let anything stand in the way of schooling!

I was actually inquiring about why the length of her degree would take 2 years not judging the choice. All the adn-bsn programs that I have looked at don't have enough credits to equal 2 more years. I've been weighing my options and was really curious. Some people choose the adn path because it is much cheaper not because they are too lazy to attend a university.
