Hi everyone, and happy new year's eve!
I'm just wondering - how many of you have a back-up plan if you are not accepted into an accelerated or direct-entry program masters program? I just turned 30, and very much want to be a nurse practitioner, however, I have to be realistic about my chances of being accepted into one of the very competitive ABSN or MEPN-type programs. So, I'm thinking about other options like getting an ADN from a community college, and just was curious if anyone out there is thinking along the same lines? Although I know the road would be longer, I'd still get there in the end, right?
I'm also wondering what that road would look like -- ADN ---> BSN (online?) ---> NP masters program (how many years before applying after BSN?) - phew, that seems long! :uhoh21:
Anyway, just curious what y'all think and what is brewing in your mind!
