    BA AND ADN, MSN IN THE FUTURE

    I did see that U of A and ASU have the direct entry MSN's, however another thing I have to consider is some programs have a LONG list of prereq's. Since I am working full time, I can only take 1 class at a time at night. So, it will take YEARS to complete all those classes. So, I am really trying to find a program that only requires the general 4-5 prereq's. Thanks so much for telling me about the CEP program. I didn't even know these existed. I saw that there are also some at the community colleges near where I currently live. I will be looking into these. To anyone else reading this.. are there any disadvantages to doing a CEP program? Will it look different to an employer if I got the associates then BSN over just the BSN?

    Sorry.. just realized I posted this under the wrong topic and I had a typo the part about hospitals asking you get the BSN when hired should say “go straight to MSN”

    BA AND ADN, MSN IN THE FUTURE

    I need some advice background: I attended UC Irvine and earned a BA in a non-nursing field. I now want to go back to school for Nursing. The accelerated second degree BSN programs are 1) extremely expensive (approx $50k and I still owe $50k for my first degree) 2) very hard to get into 3) would require me moving to a whole new area I’ve considered getting an ADN. From what I’ve heard, it’s harder and harder for ADN RN’s to get jobs. What is the best route for me? My idea was to go back to school and get my ADN from a community college, get a job as a nurse, and within the first few years of working go back and get my MSN and skip the BSN altogether. Is this a good idea? Will I be able to get a good job going this route? I’ve noticed a lot of people saying they were hired at a hospital with an ADN on the condition that they go back right away and get the BSN. Will hospitals allow me to skip that step and go straight to the MSN. Is it really true hospitals will require the BSN by 2020?? I really don’t want to have to go back for a second bachelors after competing my ADN given I have a bachelors already in something else.. any advice?
