1. I just got my acceptance letter to start Quincy Colleges ADN program this fall. I also got accepted to Northeastern's BS in Health Management program which will only take 18 months. I'm so confused about what to do. I know they're both completely different options, but I'm worried about not being able to work while doing the ADN and spending 2 more years to get another AS degree and then having to do more school to get my BSN. Anyone have any advice?

    What do you want to do? If you want to be a nurse, be a nurse. If you want to get a BS in Health Management, do that.

    Keep in mind that finding a job as a new grad ADN in Massachusetts is next to impossible- is going straight for BSN not an option for you? Northeastern has a very good nursing program.

    Two completely different options. KelRN215 is right, NE has a very good program!! Don't think about what is quicker, or easier, etc... think about what will make you happy in the end. Being in management or being a nurse..

    Good Luck!

    I just got accepted to this fall's program at Quincy too! It's up to you on what you want. Do you want to work with patients and be more hands on? or do you want to be in the management side? Go to the orientation next week and ask questions to help make up your mind. Good luck!

    Can I ask you all what your teas scores and gpa is?! Please?!

    my teas score was an 80% and my gpa is a 3.5 (after microbiology this summer I doubt it'll stay that high!!!)
