    RN to BSN or straight to BSN??

    Not sure what my science gpa is but overall its about a 3.4. Im not going to worry too much about it though because I am hoping to bring it up. I think what confuses me alot about all of this is that I could go one way and get a minor, which would be really helpful for me, or I could go the other way and end up having two years of nursing experience before I start working with my BSN. Both of these options sound great, so its difficult choosing which way to go. I know that most people want you to have your BSN nowadays, but if i went the ADN route I would go straight for the bachelors degree afterwards....

    RN to BSN or straight to BSN??

    I am 20 years old and have finished almoast all of my prerequisites. Last year I made the mistake of only applying to one BSN program and was denied. Now, I am facing two options and have no idea which route would be better for me. 1. I got accepted to a university for the fall, where I was going to retake a few sciences and also get a minor in social work to bring up my gpa. Then I would apply to lots of BSN programs. This route is appealing to me because I am already half way to my BSN, but I am also worried about getting denied from programs again. I have Bs in anatomy and physiology, and am worried that I may not bring my gpa up enough or do well enough on the TEAS this semester to make up for some of my grades.....of course I am going to do my absolute best, I am just very nervous about it all at the moment. 2. Get my CNA this fall and start an ADN program in the spring, then do a bridge RN to BSN program. I am not particularly worried about finances or time. I am just trying to find the most surefire way to eventually get that BSN. A few other things, I know that both ADN and BSN programs are very tough. I am currently struggling with anxiety problems that I know I need to take care of, so I wasnt sure if it would be less stressful to start with the CNA license and work my way to a BSN? ONn the other hand, I don't want fear of being denied again from a BSN program to completely dictate my decision. Thanks so much for the input on this!!
  3. Hello, I'm a rising freshman at Auburn University entering the pre-nursing program. I intend to graduate with a bachelor's degree in nursing, but I also want to serve in the Navy in the Nurse Corps immediately upon graduation. I have thought for a long time about participating in Navy ROTC; however, Auburn requires students in the program to take Calculus 1 and 2, as well as two semesters of calculus-based physics. This would significantly hurt my GPA, seeing that math (and calculus in particular) is not my strong suit. Aside from NROTC, there are two navy nursing options that I have read about. The first is the NCP- the Nurse Candidate Program, which I would apply to my sophomore year and become apart of my junior year. The other option, also called the NCP, is the "Navy College Program" at Auburn. This is similar to NROTC, except it does not have the calculus and physics requirements attached. Since I am a rising freshman, I would apply for this program during spring semester of freshman year and begin as a sophomore. These two programs have different requirements as far as training in college goes, but I was wondering if anyone knows which would be a better path to try and pursue? Thanks so much for the input!!! Anything helps!!!

Anything helps!!! Also I am new to the site and apologize for posting this question in the wrong section, I now realize I should have posted under government and military nursing...sorry! I'm going to attach this post there as well.
