i'm thinking about attending a school that offers a nursing diploma combined w/aas degree. can you please explain to me to what a nursing diploma is? please include the disadvantage and advantages? my background: i have presently hold a bs degree in business management and finance. i am in the process of changing careers from the financial industry into my one and only love medical field - nursing. new york city makes it extremely difficult to get into there nursing programs. i would love to get into a bsn program, which i am currently working on but i also need a back-up just in case , i don't get into a bsn program. i am also currently taking a few pre-req's at a community college. please give your feedback. my goal is to get my foot in the door and then go from there. i do plan to continue my schooling until i earn a phd in nursing, but right now i just need to get my foot in the door. my undergraduate gpa wasn't that great, so that's what i am currently struggling with.
please give your feedback.
