Hi All, 

I have recently been accepted to an ADN program that will start January 2021. I am a second degree students, with a bachelors and masters degree in healthcare. I decided to pursue a career change as I want more direct care with patients. Has anyone else followed this route? If so, were you able to find any Scholarship opportunities? If so, please let me know. 

Thanks!

I'm considering a change in careers as well except I have a Bachelors and Masters in the arts. 

Why did you decide to go the ADN route as opposed to accelerated BSN or direct entry MSN

I'm currently taking prerequisites to try and get into a program.

Would love to hear your thought process into going the ADN route as I'm trying to navigate the best route in changing careers.

I'm struggling to find Scholarships as well. Seems like theres not much out there other than Nursecorps. Going to continue working for another year and saving up money. Might work a full time and part time job to make enough money to not have to work during school.

@miqbal1109 I choose the ADN option for me because it was the most financially sound option for me to make at the time. My thought process was to obtain the RN and then have a employer pay for the BSN portion.

Make sure to check with the financial aide office for Scholarships as well.. It's surprising how much go without be rewarded because people don't know about scholarships available. Many colleges have monies that have been directed and are only paid to students from a certain high school, certain town, certain ethnicity, member of certain clubs or civic organizations, etc... will never know unless you look. 

A good example was there was a rather large endowed Scholarship where I went to nursing school that was specific for a member of the  African American community that was working towards a nursing degree and that candidate must have a hometown from one of 3 specific counties in the state. There were often semesters that no one meet all the requirements and thus it was not awarded...

@203bravo so true! I submitted my FAFSA this week so I should hear something back from my financial officer next week. We met last week over Zoom and she indicated all of the Scholarships and grant opportunities the school currently offered were for students that did not have a degree at all. They offer transfer students 12,000 which technically I am, but I don’t qualify because I already have a degree. :-(....
