I was deciding which would be the best (and cheapest) way of becoming a NP, either take RN-MSN at University of Phoenix and do what clinicals I have to do to get the MSN degree (I read you can't get the actual degree from UOP clincals ect. have to be completed first.)

or get my BSN (at either UOP or Sonoma state) and go into the Master of Science of Nursing, but my question is, is that specific program going to give me a (certificate) to become a NP or is it just a MSN degree program and I'll have to take the actual NP portion of it later?

I hope its not confusing, I'm just wondering how to go about it.

Thanks in advance!

I did my MSN with a concentration in management and leadership thru UofP. Then, I went back to my local college of nursing and did a post-MSN certificate for my CNS. The CNS certificate involved only the clinical courses: advanced assessment, adv pharm, and the clinical courses. Because clinicals require at least 500 hours, it does take time - took me two full-time semesters.

So you didnt have to do classes out side of (online or campus classes) to get your degree? I think I might do the RN to MSN route then take the certificate class at the university, which like you said, will be full time one year.
