If I become an RN (associates), then apply for a NP program that is fast track where you get your bachelors and masters within 3 years full time or longer for part time. If I go straight to the NP program after I become an RN and work while I am in it, would that be enough experience? Because I know your suppose to work as an RN for 2 or more years before, its not required to get into the program but I've heard you should. I just do not want to do that because I know once I get comfortable for a couple of years I won't want to go back to college again. So is working while in the program good enough???
