I graduated with a BA in Social Work and decided that it is time to change careers. I am not sure which path I should take to becoming a nurse. I can devote my time fully for going back to school and I want to go to fastest and easiest way. ^^
#1 LVN/LPN which takes 1 year and then going back for 1 years for RN.
#2 ADN (Associate's Degree in Nursing) which takes 2 years to complete.
# 3 Accelerated BSN / Second Degree BSN - I heard that this program is designed for non-nurses who have bachelor's degrees in non-nursing fields, but there's only a handful of schools with this program in the U.S.
#4 Direct Entry MSN - designed for non-nurses who hold bachelor's degrees in non-nursing fields. This takes 3 years and very limited schools.
I would appreciate your thoughts to my question. Thank you.
