Hi ladies and gentlemen!
(First off I should point out that I know there are so many different ways to become an RN, or NP... I just don't know they yet. I plan on getting my Master's and hopefully becoming a Nurse Practitioner one day (not sure what to specialize in just yet).
I need some input please...)
I am actually still getting my pre-requisites for the nursing program at a community college I will be applying to soon. I'm wondering if I should take the LPN program so that I can work in a health setting to gain experience, or if I should just continue with school and shoot straight for the Bachelor's degree to obtain the RN.
After I finish the 2 year associate program, I plan on transferring to BJ Goldfarb School or Nursing (or) UMSL's nursing program. Still undecided.
If you could give me any advice at all on which route is the best to take, I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you in advance
