nursing program

by chimene chimene (New) New

Hello everybody Im new on this website I hope I will learn from you. The reason why I registered is because Im currently enrolled in pre nursing in order to transfer to a four year instition. I m currently living in North Carolina and the school Im attending offer a two year nursing program in order to become RN with an associate degree. I heard that being already an Rn helps a lot if you want to get a BSN from a 4 year school. Is that true? But it take so long that I told myself that I'd better just take tranfer classes and then apply to any university's nursing program to get my bachelor. Is anyone here that can give me advice and recommendations.

would you share your experience with me

Thanks in advance

I am now an LPN working on my 2 year RN. I have researched the RN-BSN and the schools here (Alabama) offer a 1 year program. If you want your MSN, they offer a 5 semester program to go from associates degree to MSN. Hope this helps.

RN to BSN programs are indeed very easy to get into. Much easier than a traditional BSN program that only has a few spots. There are many online programs you can attend to get your RN to BSN. The good thing about them is you can do them part time and finish in a year to two years depending on the schools co-req requirements, all the while working as an RN.

However, if you can get into a BSN program and it will take you just as long as getting the ADN I say do your best to get the BSN now and get it over with.

nursejoy1 That is such a great thing to move from associate degree to MSN. unfortunately I live in North Carolina and I do not think there is any school that offer that in here.

Tweety I know it is easier but people told me that me it take so long time to get in the 2 year RN program offered in my school. It can take up to 5 years just to get an Associate. That is too much time. I want to get my PhD by 30. Right now Iam 22 I dont have much time left. I think that I will just take transfer classes and attend UNCG's upper division. how did you get your bachelor. Did you attend a 4 year school? if yes how did you get accepted into the clinical part and how long did it take you to be accepted. was the selection based on grades? Is it possible to minor in psychology?
