I am getting really discouraged with my efforts to becoming a nurse.
I already have a BA in psychology and wish to be an RN. Then after working for a few years complete my education by becoming a FNP.
I have applied to several BSN accelerated programs and have not heard back from some of them yet, but the few that I have I did not get in to. I believe that this is because my overall GPA was not very high, although in all my nursing prereq. classes I have a 4.0.
I'm now thinking of just doing a traditional RN program but I'm not sure if I should go for a BSN or ADN. Will this decision affect my later wanting to go into a masters program?
I'm 26 now and didn't want to be in a 3 year program, especially since I have already had 4 years of school. I feel like this is a never ending endeavor. I was also thinking about doing a direct entry masters program, but since I'm not getting into any accelerated BSN programs, I probably wouldn't get in to that sort of program either.
I'm looking at any programs in CA, Denver, or Des Moines.
I have always wanted to be a nurse, but my university didn't offer a program. I don't really have a plan B for my life, so I would really appreciate some guidance from all of you that have been there.
Thank you so much!
