    A dose of reality I didnt need!

    You know what I have hear enough negative sh@# on here. I think with the increasing shortage and the continuing problems nursing has nowhere to go but up! I mean that in patient ratios, salary and respect! I have a BS in Bio already and am entering an acclerated BSN program of 16 months in a top 10 ranked program and am very excited for the future of nursing. Personally my end goal is a CRNA! I think in the next 5 years things will have to change for the better and lett bit@#ing will occur... I hope. J

    Anything Positive on Nursing ???

    I have been reading the posts on the BB for quite a while now since I am considering going back and getting a 2nd BS degree as a BSN. I live in San Diego and have known quite a few nurses most in their 20s. They seem to have quite a different view of nursing than many of those who post on here. Some are travelers and some not. One of my friends works at a local hospital as a flight nurse with 8 years experience and makes about 70K/year and loves her job. Others I have talked to make pretty decent money and think highly of what they do and don't complain much. Seems it either varies alot by unit, geography, past experience etc... just a though.

    Depressed over salary

    I am fairly new here, but I can see everyone is upset (for the most part) about salaries. If you want more money why don't you back and get your masters in CRNA or NP?

  6. I have been reading and following here for a while without posting but I want some feedback (please) on this. First off, I am 28, male, and in sales in the computer industry... and bored senseless! Yes making decent money and that is important but not everything! I have a BS in bio and am planning to return this fall for a BSN in a 16 month acclerated program. I live in San Diego and most nurse friends I have enjoy their job... one is 29 and makes 80K per year and is not an agency or travel nurse. That may not be the norm and yes it is expensive to live here but others I talked to said you can start pretty close to 50K/year. I have always wanted something in the health field and nursing seems to me to be a good choice. You can be a generalist or specialize and switch when you get bored. You can also go back for an NP or CRNA degree for more autonomy and more money. I shadowed a CRNA recently and seems like a nice job and they are very in demand as are all nurses right now. I am hoping to get my BSN, go into an ICU dept, work for a year or more then on to CRNA school... but if that doesn't happen I still think with all the publicity and the shortage things will improve in the near future, at least financially... Any advice or comments are appreciated.
  7. I already have a BS in bio and am interested in any schools in CA that have a 2 year or less program to get a BSN. I am aware of a school in MD that lets you do it in 16 months! Any in CA???
  8. I already have a bio degree and am considering going back for a BSN. I would love to hear from males or females what the perception from both health practioners and the general public is toward men. I am also interested in CRNA, which from what I have read is about half males... is the perception there any different?
