  1. I'm currently finishing up my pre nursing AA but due to the overwhelming amount of competition in asn and BSN programs I can't seem to get my foot in the door. Especially since most BSN programs require an ASN in south florida instead of an AA and the ASN programs themselves are very competitive, and I don't have the patience to keep waiting to get in. I'm planning to take an alternative route and complete my pre nursing AA and then get my LPN to get my foot in the door, get experience Etc . What I would like to know is my only option to get my LPN-ASN and then apply to a BSN program with that ? or is it possible to do LPN-BSN directly? I would have an AA already and most of the credits and as a lpn I've seen it's easier to get into a program.
  2. I applied to the miami dade college nursing program but did not get in, I passed the ATI with a 70% and had finished all the required perquisites for that program, I had hoped to score higher but nonetheless I applied. What I would like to know is what good Asn programs could I apply to near miami? I've done some research and am overwhelmed by all the options, and requirements. I've even looked into some lpn programs but also have difficulty with finding a good program or even deciding which route to take lpn or RN. I'm 22 and simply overthink everything so any advice would be great :)

    ICU in the military

    Wow! That's awesome. I had assumed that landing a job in the ICU as a new grad would be very very difficult that is why i had the military route in mind. Are their certain requirements for the fellowships? Or is it pretty straightforward? Also around how much would i earn in the ICU as a new grad? (Curious to see if it would be more time and financially efficient to pay back loans)

    ICU in the military

    Hello I am currently a senior and I am interested in becoming a crna but prior to that i have other worries such as getting into a good college etc. I am curious about post grad from nursing school. Can you go to a military branch as a nurse and work in a icu unit? Or is it just as hard as getting into a icu unit as a civilian? Also as a civilian how does becoming a icu nurse work? You apply right after post grad? You need certain experience first? I am interested in the military route because I would like to get school paid off as i get my experience and as i get paid so i can use the money for crna school. Please give me a insight, options and what route you think is best. Thank you very much :).
