    Help from BS (non nursing) to MSN

    Thanks rninwch, I was aware of OSU's, but I wanted to apply broadly. Just to increase my chances. Thanks for the link, I'm definitely gonna check it out!
  2. Hi guys, This is my first time posting on AllNurses, but I've been looking around for a while. Until about two quarters ago, I had my heart set on becoming a physician. After thinking, I realized that I didn't want to spend such a large portion of my life in school...I want to get married, have many kids (lol), travel...things that won't be so realistic if I attended medical school + residency. So, I have been looking into Nurse Practioner and its really appealing to me. I'll be graduating early (as a Junior) with a BS in Biology from Ohio State, and I had a few questions about BS to MSN programs and prospective jobs. Are they costly? How difficult is the curriculum? ( I know its gonna be hard bc its grad school, but comparatively) Looking into the job market, would a NP who was a nurse be more appealing than me? I understand there aren't alot of BS(non nursing) to MSN programs out there, but could anyone provide me with a link or list of American schools that provide these programs? Would I be considered competitve? GPA 3.3 right now but haven't taken my GEC's and 3 science classes, so I'm expecting it to be around 3.6-.7 by graduation. I have 3 months of hospital volunteering, about 5 years of volunteering as a tutor for my old school. Also, how do you like whichever program you attended? Do you have any regrets? Anything you would've done different?
