    That's exactly how I'm working it. That way I'm making money after year 1 as a LVN & then get that new employer to help pay for the RN & BSN. I'll get finished in a little over 3 years. I wish you well o the journey.

    well if it is goning to take you 3 years, then just go ahead and get your BSN...bachelors will only take you two years but you will make up for the money after that...

    more opportunities right after school as an RN with a BSN, rather than the long way around

    I'm a 32 year old IT pro who's sick of sitting behind a desk all day. I'm in my 4th semester of clinicals (part time program) and even though it means long days and lots of homework, I've been loving it so far. It can be a little weird at times, going from an industry that's fairly male-dominated to one that's female-dominated for the most part, but I still love it.

    Any advice for surviving Labor & Delivery? That's the rotation I'm in currently.

    Hey! Australia! WoW! I've always wanted to take a trip there.....maybe after school. What do you like BEST about being a nurse and what do you like least? What's been most challenging?

    What's nursing like in Ghana? Sounds fascinating! Tell us more. What type of equipment do you have? Do nurses do a lot of interventions and do they partner with the physicians there?

    Hey I'm only 22 years old now and got long ways ahead of me in nursing. I rarely see bedside nurses who are male and are a lot older. I mostly see them having masters or doctorates...
