  3. Ladies, you have been incredibly generous with your perspectives and tidbits of knowledge here. Thank you! The most important insight I gained is that of considering location. While is true that LPN route can eventually work out in some states, where...
  4. Safety Nurse in Haiti: A Medical Mission Trip - Origin Story Pt. 2

    I'm very happy and grateful that you posted this article. I already reached out to the organization. One of the reasons why I decided to change careers and pursue nursing is because I wish to deliver more impact than in my current profession. One suc...
  5. Hello ladies, I was hoping to hear from those of you who went on to become LPN's instead of choosing the second degree BSN. I have a graduate degree in a non-science field and started my pre-reqs with the hopes of entering an ABSN, but I have stude...

  13. Get my BSN or Direct-Entry MSN?

    How was your experience? I'm facing the same issue now. The option I'm looking at now is either ABSN or MSN - however the man dies not give you NP. I'd like to eventually teach so I was debating if I should do the ABSN and move directly to a DNP aft...
