    Completing Pre-Req's after I finish my first Bachelor's Degree?

    Thank you all! I'll start looking at community colleges down there now. I think this will cost a little more in the long run because I have been told financial aid is not available as much after you have your Bachelor's degree. But it should pay off! And, I'll be reunited with my husband sooner. :-)
  2. Hi All! Okay, so I'm going to briefly explain my situation because it is so hectic, so I apologize if this post is really long! Im married, and have 2 kids. My husband got a really, REALLY good job in NC so he is currently living there while I am in MD finishing my last 2 semesters in school for my Psyc/Socy B.A. degree.. Our plan is for me to graduate from my University and move to NC... Here's the issue I need advice on: If I take my pre-req's here at my University BEFORE I graduate it will take me until May 2016 to move to NC with my husband.. But, if I just graduate without taking my pre-req's for nursing school, then I graduate December 2015.. Naturally, I miss my hubby and want to be reunited with him as soon as possible, and also I am not sure my kids (8 months and 3 years) are really old enough to understand that "Dad is in another state for now". But I am hoping they are okay dealing with this temporary change. I've been contemplating this for almost 2 months now and would love to here your input. And also, If anyone knows of any colleges/universities in NC that allow you to take pre-req's there before applying to a program? Thanks in advance! HAPPY THANKSGIVING.

    2nd degree BSN worth it?

    Wow. So much debate. I wish I could say I have my answer after posting this message.. BUT.. I believe I am even MORE confused. Lol. And I dont say that to make anyone mad. Thank you all for the different advice and input... Here is what I will take from this posting: Narrow my top choices of Nursing schools and contact them personally. I will ask them about financial aid. Ask if I can take pre-req's there (if needed). Explain my situation and ask which program they recommend based on my current college coursework I have already completed. AND ask an recommendation if it would be beneficial to complete my Bachelor's before applying. That is basically where I will begin! I'll come back on here with updates once I speak with them. Hopefully they accept phone calls because the places I am interested in are in another state (I'm in a long distance relationship and will move to that state after I decided what to do!) A genuine thank you to all of you! :-)

    2nd degree BSN worth it?

    Thanks caliotter3. I agree with you and dt70, being able to transfer courses for degree credit is one of the pro's of holding a previous degree. People just keep telling me to just transfer to a school that offers a BSN and just go from there but, I keep thinking I am only 30 credits away from getting my Psychology/Sociology degree at my current university. It seems like it would be a waste to just forget about that degree, leave my university, and continue with a BSN instead.

    2nd degree BSN worth it?

    Thanks dt70. I will keep that in mind, I did not consider some credits from previous degree work would transfer to the BSN. Always, good to know.

    Thanks Chuleta. If I were to talk to the schools I am interested in, do you think they will disclose their point systems?

    Does already having another Bachelor's degree have any greater weight on being accepted versus students who do not have another degree? All of this is new to me and I am trying to figure out what makes more sense before applying to a Nursing school. Thanks for any advice! :-)

    HELP! Decisions, Decisions!!

    Thanks for your input! I did not realize about the financial aid situation going to Nursing school post bachelors. I'll have to look into costs of the Nursing schools I am interested in if I go that route. " Could you please elaborate? I am not sure what you meant when you said, "You could finish what you've been doing, and then go for an accelerated BSN, but that would probably take even longer than starting that now and going the traditional route." Could you please elaborate? Thanks!

    HELP! Decisions, Decisions!!

    A little about my journey: I am exactly 30 credits away from graduating with a dual Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and Sociology... My current University does not offer Nursing as a major, just a Pre-Nursing certificate, which only consists of the pre-requisites needed to apply to nursing school. Here's my questions: 1) Should I still graduate with my B.A. in Psyc & Sociology (since I am so close, yet so far from the finish line) and then apply to a BSN program AFTERWARDS? Or should I do another route? 2) Is it frowned upon to take some of my pre-requisite classes for nursing school at my previous community college and have those classes added on to my credits to graduate from my current 4-year institution? ...... I only ask because my university has limited class dates/times to take most of my pre-req's and it is very annoying. So, I spoke with my Registar and they said I can take up to 60 credits at the community college level and transfer them in for my graduation requirements. Sorry for this being so long! But, I am open to any advice anyone may have. :-)
