Hello Nursing forums, I am so fortunate as to find you, as I know alot of you have been/are in the process of/ applying for nursing schools.
I recently got an associates (Liberal Arts) from my local college and wish to pursue a career in nursing. I have already passed the NET, gone to the information session (at my community college) and am on the waiting list. Although I wish to apply to other schools, though when I get to the websites I'm really not to sure what I should put myself under. Am I applying to a BSN program? an Associates nursing program? Mind you I WANT a BSN. I'm really confused as to what to do next, and any help would be greatly appreciated. If you need some info on what ever my position is please don't hesitate to ask.
If you are looking at a site where the school has an ASN program, that is what you apply for. If the school has a BSN program, then you apply for that. Most students apply to all the programs in their area and then attend the one that accepts them or the one that accepts them first. If you receive multiple acceptances, it would make sense to attend the BSN program. You can always get a BSN later if the program you start with is an ASN program.
I think you have to go for BSN rather other nursing courses. Because the Bachelorís of Science in Nursing degree prepares graduates for entry-level nursing positions in all healthcare settings as well as graduate study. This degree prepares students to take the national RN licensing exam and become registered nurses.
