I'm a planner by nature so I have all of my plans all laid out (which of course will change along the way but I like at least having a plan).
I'm on the ASN to BSN to MSN path.
I really wanted to just knock out my BSN right away and actually could have done it quicker than getting just my ASN but because I have to work during the day I had to go w/ the program that had a night option and that was a part time ASN program.
So I hope to finish my ADN in Dec of '12 (hoping to make the fall '10 class, just missed deadline to go this fall!
Then I'm going to do the ADN to BSN program at a local college which I already have some of the gen ed stuff out of the way for.
Then I'm hoping to get some working experience and then apply to Frontier for my CNM and once that is completed also obtain my WHNP cert.
I plan on catching babies for 15 years or so and then maybe go back for some admin/teaching certificates and persue one of those option until I retire.
Now if only it all worked out so nice and easy like that!
