ok.. I am lost again. I found a private university here in Orlando offering an "ASN" degree in 24 months. First of all, what exactly is this? She says at the end you qualify to take the NCLEX... so if you pass, this makes you... an RN???? Im confused. I also appearantly dont need any pre-req's, other than the NET... but they are appearantly changing that after this batch of students goes through. The course is 35k....does this seem on target? It seems the more I look into this, the more overwhelmed Im getting. Not to mention, everything I see seems to say that there's NO way I can work while doing a program like this. Lol, Help!
ASN means an associate of science degree in nursing. You can become an RN through either a diploma program, associates, or bachelors, doesn't matter as long as you pass your boards. As for the price, it is pretty high, but then again it is a private school so I guess you have to expect that. Since they're not any pre-reqs, I'm assuming you will have to take classes like A&P I&II, microbiology, etc., while also taking your nursing classes so having a job while in school might be pretty hard, but it all depends on how much you can handle. Hope that helps. Good luck!
Do you have any local Technical Colleges or Community Colleges that offer the ASN/ADN? 35k for ASN/ADN is quite high! With my pre-reqs and nursing courses I don't think my total went much more than about 10-12k. If I were you, I would definately look into another school.
Thank you... I have heard that is pretty high from a few other people as well... and I found a thread n here about another of their branches referring to being stuck in "Herzing Hell". 35 grand is too much to pay on a risky offer, even if I could "potentially" have my RN in 24 months. I'd lovce to get the process going but I'd rather be safe than (extremely) sorry!
I think that is somewhat outrageous. My program is running about 7k. I plan on going to CRNA in the future and 35k is about what I would closely expect to pay, maybe even a little higher. Usually an ASN/ADN is more cost effective, but that it scary. Are the pre-reqs built into the program? Because any typical ADN program once pre-reqs are completed are about 2 years, actually less if you don't count summers. Do you attend school in the summer?
The cost seems very high. I am going back to school at a local community college and it will cost me roughly $7,000 when I am done. My time line is 2 years because I have a BA so a lot of my pre-reqs I already have completed. I do have to repeat the science classes cause they are more then 10 year old. For those without a degree starting fresh it's a three year program costing $8500. I would look around.
Good news is one of my closest friends has been an RN for 25 years and she she said for starting at a hospital the pay scale is the same regardless of ASN or BSN. The BSN is handy if you want to move into nurse management.
