I am a New Jersey high school senior. I have applied to 4 colleges: Fairleigh Dickinson (Metro Area), Richard Stockton, William Pat and UCC. My SAT scores were low so idk if id get into any of these nursing majors at these colleges because I sent my apps about a month ago and they are still reviewing them.
Anyways, this opportunity came along for several of my classmates who were interested and I am highly interested as well. It is a grant program that pays for your schooling and books. You can become a CNA at first and then an LPN and hopefully an RN. Anyways, you take your pre req. courses at a community college I believe and then once you graduate and get your ADN from the program, they place you in a hospital to work at and you make money while also continuing your education with their program.
I am looking up online if its better to get your BSN or ADN and it seems like BSN would be the better way to go because you make more money and have better opportunities. The thing is I dont have any money for college so I think the ADN course fits me right now. Unless I were to do my pre req. at a community college for 2 years and then transfer to a 4 year college and finish my 2 years.
My parents really like the ADN program because its the most reasonable and they place you with a job but Im not sure which I would be better off doing.
Also is there a way that once i get my ADN, that I can get my bachelors somewhere or is that not possible? Wouldnt it be more schooling if i got my ADN and then went back to school to get my bachelors?
Im a confused HS senior and not sure which road to take. someone give me advice please =/
