Here is my situation. I have not worked for a few years. I currently have a license as an esthetician and have gone back to school to pursue nursing. It took me a while to decide between becoming a nurse or a dietitian but for the most part I have made up my mind. I was not working because I had young children. Well, they are still young but one is in the first grade and the other in preschool. Now when I started at the CC I was taking all of my prereqs for the BSN/Nutrition degree. I will be finished with my Associate's in the fall if I decide to take the AA or next spring if I take the AS. For either program at the university I will have the pre-reqs completed at that time, however I will have to complete one semester at the university if I want to apply to the nursing program.
As most of you know the university is pretty expensive. It is like 350 per credit hour. We are only living off of one income, would it be wiser to get the ADN and then get the BSN later, or stay on the BSN track? Oh, and if I apply to the nursing program at the CC I still have to get licensed as a CNA. And I can't do that until next summer at the earliest spring anyways. Does anyone have some sound advice for me? Thank you.
