I am currently in college and expect to graduate in Dec2007 as a psychology major and a biological sciences minor. I am definately interested in nursing.
What I would like to do is enter an accelerated BSN program the May or Sept after my college graduation. I would complete most/all of the prereqs at the college I'm at now while I'm getting this degree. If I have one prereq left, I can always finish that the Spring semester (2008) after I graduate and before I enter the BSN program in May or Sept 2008.
My question is.......I realize that most ppl entering these programs have been out of college for at least a few years. Is it unusual or unheard of to enter one of these programs just a few months after obtaining the first degree? Would this lessen my chances of being accepted b/c I would be fresh out of college with the first degree and submitting my application before/right around the time I actually get my BA?
Any insight, advice, or personal experiences would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
