  1. Do it! Do whatever you need to do. I am moving for nursing school.

    I was thinking of being a CNA and working night shifts but Bath and Body Works is sounding way better.

    Yeah you need to email the texas workforce office in your area. Every office has different rules.

    RN 30 unit option

    Yeah it doesn't sound very smart unless you have no other option.

    RN 30 unit option

    I'm not doing this program but I find it interesting. If you were to do this 30 unit option, do you take the same NCLEX? Could you enroll in a traditional BSN program or a traditional ADN program as a nurse? I'm looking at schools and bridge programs are 1 year for the traditional lvn to RN. The 30 unit is also one year. Am I missing something?

    Second degree / career change

    What is your end goal? For me, I want to be an NP. So I am doing a post bacc RN-MSN program through Texas Women’s University. I already have a premed degree and don’t want another bachelors when I don’t plan on being a floor nurse for very long. I would not do that program if you don’t have a degree or all the requirements because it can be cheaper to go the rn to bsn route first. If you do want to end at floor nursing then just do the adn which is 2 years and rn-bsn program which is about 2-3 semesters and then be done. Don’t screw around with Mepns. At least I wouldn’t. It’s expensive and for what. The equivalent of an ADN from what I’ve been told on here. You can get that for $1500 a semester and a cc with books!! Be smart about it and know that it will take some time. TIP*** some cc nursing school have a concurrent agreement which allows you to automatically be accepted into an rn to bsn program so you can start your courses after graduation and do not have to wait until after you pass boards. In Texas, TWU has a concurrent agreement with a lot of schools which also includes their rn to msn program. So you will automatically be accepted and can start courses after graduation. Make sure you look into that.

    ADN-BSN/MSN bridge taking non nursing BA degree credits?

    Texas women’s university has a post baccalaureate rn-msn program.

    Online Lvn to rn program

    I would have that program as the last resort because some states don’t recognize that as accredited. Even if you pass your boards they won’t. Even with a bsn and an msn.

    Am I Fit for Nursing?! HELP

    There’s no way of know if you are really fit. But if you think you’ve got what it takes then I say go for it. As a mother myself, I always encourage other moms to start at the community college level and work your way up.
  16. I found myself in a similar place. A BS in Healthcare studies trying to find the quickest route when all I needed to do from the very beginning was slow down. I can’t tell how many semesters I overpacked with classes and was going 90 m/hr making terrible grades. Who am I racing? SLOW DOWN. If you want to be a nurse, don’t attempt an ABSN. Go to community college. Then go to a university. Because we took premed classes, a bsn will be 10 courses long. Please please please listen to me. You are going way to fast and not allowing yourself to really retain any information from the classes you took. You are going to get into this ABSN and flunk out. Don’t do it. It’s going to be way too fast paced for you. Just please slow down and take a more scenic route from here on out. My goal since my senior year of college was to be an NP. As soon as I made my mind up I started looking for ABSN programs and the quickest fastest way to get there. My undergrad gpa was crap from cramming 7 subjects each semester and never retaining anything. What I really needed to do was slow down. So I decided to start at community college and work my way up. Just my 2 cents.
