Yea.... I am also looking at the accelerated programs, but since I never studied in US, I am a little worried I can not quickly catch up....
I have the same thought as you, and now I plan to go to the community school to ask an advisor about the ASN program and their transfer program! Thanks so much for your suggestions!
Thank you for sharing your experiences! I am so surprised to receive such prompt and detailed suggestion and I am now also planning to go to the community school to ask about the transfer program. Thanks a lot!!
I have graduated from a university outside of US with BA degree. Now I want to study for a BSN degree. I want to ask why most people choose a 4 year traditional BSN program instead of get a ASN in a community school ,then study a RN-BSN program? Since the second way might only need 3 -4years and also get a Bachelor degree. In addition the tuition will be much cheaper and you can work while you study the RN-BSN program. So is there any reason I did not noticed? maybe the bachelor degree from RN-BSN program is different from traditional BSN? Or the passing rate of a register nursing test is very low in community school? etc.
I have had a bachelor degree major in English from a Chinese university, and now I want to become a nurse. I noticed there are several path to become a nurse, but can not decide which one best for my situation, hope anyone can give me some suggestion,thanks!
1. Accelerated Program: it only takes one year to complete which is great, but I heard it's quite competitive to get a space for most university. And since i never studied in US, I am not sure whether the course will be too overwhelmed for me
2. 4 years traditional Program: It's a easier way to get a BSN Degree, but that means it is a bit too long for me since I hope I can get to work earlier to help to support my family
3. Community school: I found a Community school offer 2 year ASN program, and I think if I will continue study RN-BSN program after that, so that I can finally get a BSN degree. And one thing I especially want to ask is why people choose traditional program instead of this one, since this one is cheaper any you can work after 2 years and also you can apply RN-BSN program later to get BSN ?
4. I recently also found the Community scholl has some transfer program, not very clear about the difference from the 4 years traditional program
Thanks for anyone taking your time to read and I will be very appreciate if you can leave some suggestion for me! Thanks
