    *** My advice is to do whatever program that gets you a license the fastest. This likely means an accelerated BSN. If you have to work while in school then do ADN. ADN will be by far the cheapest but most community colleges have waiting lists. I would bet that as a UW Eau Clair grad you would stand a great chance of getting into their accelerated BSN program. Call he schools you are interested in and ask to speak to the program counselor to get the ball rolling. If you have and specific questions feel free to PM me. Good luck!
    Thanks! I've sent out a few tentative e-mails to some of the community colleges in the area, and may send an e-mail to UWEC as well just to see. I have another year left on my contract at my current job and thought now would be a good time to start exploring and taking care of some of the pre-recs if I decide to go for it. I'm not sure if I want to stay on the east coast for school or move back to the midwest, but the more I think about the possibilities of a major change, the more excited I get! If I can think of anything specific I may drop you a PM. Thanks again!

    I'm another recent grad thinking about making the change! I have a degree in political science and broadcast journalism (from UW-Eau Claire!) and am working in local television in Rhode Island. After working in tv for 6 years I know this isn't the path I want to continue on and am thinking about nursing. Would it make more sense for me to go back and get a BSN or would an associate degree be a better route? My GPA isn't the greatest as well for similar reasons, though I did really well my last few years.

    How does one go about starting the process? Thanks!
