    I am in a nursing program right now. Just over halfway done. Due to financial restraints and the time i decided to apply (late june) I got accepted into a school in pennsylvania completing my ADN and doing my BSN classes at the same time. So in a year ill have my ADN and BSN and due to the schools connections I can move into an MSN program after graduation (family Nurse Practitioner)

    Congrats! Seems like things are going well for you!

    I shadowed a Physical Therapist the other-day--which is also something I'm very interested in. The thing is, my two in a half years of college I have now won't do anything towards my nursing major, and I wont be able to apply for the nursing program until 2015 after I'm done with all these pre-nursing classes. The adviser showed me that I could use my two years of college towards a undergraduate degree such as psychology or health science, and than apply for the DPT program for Physical Therapy. The way the sequence works, I will have a DPT in PT the same amount of time I would have a BSN in nursing.

    I guess it still comes down to what I would really want to do, but I would honestly love doing both.
