    Good luck to you.

    whoops, I just read that its not an advanced practice program. Well, I don't really know that much about it.....
    but would just wonder in the end, if there would be any real difference in the amount of money you make with a Master's verses a Bachelor's degree. Even with a specialty degree, will you be hired with no experience, to be an expert in your field and lead others in this higher paying role? Is it worth the extra time in school and extra tuition spent?

    after reading the brochure about it, I do see the potential there, and see that they are trying to elevate the nursing profession, guarantee quality care, etc

    But real life is real life, and sometimes you just wish you didn't have all that debt, especially when you are working alongside a damn good diploma prepared RN who knows her stuff and makes just as much money as you do

    I'm super excited to learn about this program! I can't believe I didn't see it before!!!! I had applied for the accelerated bsn, but my transcripts did not get there in time. I sure hope it was for a reason and I get into the AGMSN!!!
