    Pursuing Nursing - Need Direction

    CommunityRNBSN - That's great. You were in the same exact place I'm in. Thanks for your insight. How long did it take you to get the pre-reqs and bachelor's finished? Did you do in-class version or online? You are right; I did mean APRN. You did not misread. What school did you get your BSN at, if you don't mind me asking?

    shiftingtides - Honestly, my main goal is to get the RN. I'm not super concerned with the degree I get. I was merely thinking....while I'm getting an Associates, I could have just got a Master's in the same amount of time and have the option to be a NP? Instead of two years for the assoc or bachelor's and THEN two more years for the NP masters. Does that make sense? Not sure if I'm being clear.

    db2xs - I just assumed that a NP should work as an RN first. I guess that's not necessarily the case. Seems crazy for me to go straight from being an Accountant to being a NP lol, but maybe I'm wrong. Pampam82 - That's a good point. I can see how the Master's will offer you more opportunities, possibly. I looked up your program. WOW, that's expensive. Is that a typical cost of of a Nursing Masters?

    Thank you for your insight, db2xs. That's really helpful, since you have been where I am. I can definitely see how working as an RN first would help. Or at least wouldn't hurt anything. So even if I get the Master's, I could work as an RN first, right? Even though I'd be able to be an NP at that point, would I HAVE to? DowntheRiver - You are right. I didn't know how to say it correctly. Thanks for clarifying that.

    caliotter3 - That's great advice. I definitely wound't want to bite off more than I could do. My biggest hurdle is going to be working while doing this. I can't stop working. But I also don't want to be in school for 2 or 3 years just to get a Bachelor's, when I could do the same time and get a MSN.

    Thank you, Kristen. May I ask which school you are attending for this? Is it an online program? Or a physical in-class program? How much extra schooling will you need after the MENP to become a FNP? Or maybe I misread your post...
  7. I have a non-nursing Bachelor's degree (and an MBA). I am 35 years old and I'm considering changing careers to Nursing. What is my best plan of attack? 1. Get a bachelor's in nursing? 2. Get a RN certification (w/out BSN)? 3. Or go for the Master's in Nursing? Thank you for your input.
