welcome! Yes, there are still pathway programs out there. I have heard of RN-BSN-MSN tracks, check with all your universities. An RN-BSN track is mostly on-line, usually 18 months, not very difficult, probably shorter for you since you probably have some of the required classes.
I am a FNP and love what I do. I have been overworked at 2 positions I have held, the other practices have not been a problem. You have to go out there, get experience, and find what works for your life (hours, benefits, etc.)
I have a great position now that I would not have been able to obtain if I did not have the other experience behind me. While you are working as an RN, learn as much as you can, read reports, talks with physicians, PAs, NPs. It will benefit you at the end.
