Hello everyone I wanted to introduce myself. I was a member of this forum years ago but I couldn’t seem to recover my login information.  

I am an LPN currently with 14 years of experience.  I decided last year it was time to move up the proverbial latter.  I enrolled into a local community college (Pellisippi State) where I am currently completing all of the pre-requisites for the LPN-RN program which I will begin next summer.

Since I have a year before the bridge program begins,  I am also completing all the needed BSN pre-requisites as I intend to enroll in an RN-BSN online program through East Tennessee State University. 

I was very interested in obtaining the BSN through Western Governors as I love the price; however, I feel for me personally the traditional route will work great because I plan to complete the BSN - DNP program at ETSU as well. The great thing about completing my pre-reqs now is that I will be able to complete the RN - BSN bridge in 2 semesters (summer and fall) ideally I should graduate with the ASN in Spring of 2022, and graduate with the BSN in the fall of 2022. Then with plenty of studying and hard work I should complete the DNP, PMHNP in the fall of 2025.  

Looking at it now seems like it is so far away as I’m doing this while working 32 hours on the weekends and with 4 children.  If everything stays on track I will graduate with a Doctorate degree when my eldest child graduates high school. 

Any insight or encouragement would be fantastic. Thanks in advance.  

P.S. I love reading through all of the great posts on this board.

Hey everyone I'm a new ABSN nursing student! I already have my BS in healthcare administration and management and for years I have been trying to get into the field for years no. To no avail I was unlivky and saw a trending pattern that they wanted someone with nursing experience. Well lucky for me I had planned on becoming a RN long ago started as a CNA, but life took over and we all know how that goes.

So a decade later, 3 kids and a degree, I finally acheived my pre-reqs last month and was accepted into the Nursing Program 😁. I started three weeks ago now and am loving every minute of it! I am also documenting my experience and would love some support, and any ideas on what other incoming or newly accepted nursing students want to know. If you can LIKE, COMMENT AND SUBSCRIBE to my page I would appreciate it!  I am all about helping and supporting one another, us nurses gotta stick together ☺️
