When becoming a nurse, which is the best route to take?

From what I've heard there are a lot of different routes to becoming a nurse of some sort. I've been told so many different routes to getting a nursing degree, that now i'm not even sure what I should be doing. Getting a Bachelors degree vs an Associates degree, or getting a nursing certificate before either of those. #nursing #pediatric-nursing #nursing-education

It may depend on what is offered near you, but I would consider getting and Associates degree in nursing first, and then you will likely be able to work while you are in what’s known as an RN to BSN program. Ultimately it seems these days that you will need a BSN, but why not try to get your RN license first??

Hope this helps!!

Brian’s Answer

It all depends on your grades and your motivation. Nursing is a very competitive field to get into now. If you are willing to work hard, and if you want to be a nurse, then I guess you do, then getting you BSN is the proper route to take. Most hospitals are requiring you to have a BSN these days in order to advance. So your best bet is to work very hard on your pre-requisites and get the grades to get into the nursing program. If you need to, an AA in nursing is also a way to go, but you might have to work in a nursing home or an assisted living facility to get your foot in the door.
