Oh my gosh, I am so happy I came upon this thread! I was wondering the same thing. I haven't started my actual RN program yet, but it is a dual-enrollment program, where you get your ADN from the community college (and can sit for the NCLEX), and you are also automatically enrolled in a state univerity BSN progam which starts the next sememster. It is NOT online however, and seems to be very much an in-person situation, taking a year and a half (due to it not going through the summer). So I would add to the OP's question...would it be best in this dual-enrollment situation to do the same thing as suggested above, or wait to take the NCLEX (which I think would not be a good option, as a lot of the BSN is more theory and leadership and other info could get rusty). The caveat is in my area it seems EVERYONE wants a BSN, regardless if it's in a hospital or not, so this worries me in trying to find a job as a new grad ADN. Should I add on a resumer that I am absolutely planning on getting a BSN? (which I am). You all are so helpful!
