Thanks Noryn and pama, for the information about Southern.
This is my first time hearing about the program, I've only started to browse schools recently. I've thought a lot about getting my ADN first, then later going back to school if I choose.
Honestly, I come from a single parent home and we don't have a lot of money. My dad's on disablity and worker's comp, which doesn't pay a lot. The only way I'd be able to pay for a school (especially expensive ones) is through scholarships
and loans and if that fell through, I'd be screwed. So if I have a stable paycheck after two years, it would be great.
Where is Southern's campus located?
If I go my ADN, how long would I have to work before going back to school for a MSN? How long would the MSN take to complete?
Also, I know this is a silly question, there is still plenty opportunities for ADN's right? In the West Virginia area? I'm definitely not trying to start the BSN vs. ADN discussion, I just want to know if I'd probably be able to secure a job if I choose this route.
Thanks again for the info! :wink2:
Oh one more thing, where do I find NCLEX pass rates for schools? Is there a website?
