I would try and do an accelerated program that allows you to get your BSN AND your MSN in 3 years (and sometimes less). You will likely have to do about a year of pre-reqs before you can apply but you skip a step with these programs because you can become a Nurse Practitioner after you finish this program.
I am doing a similar program.
These programs are designed for non-nurse college graduates. In some of them, you are considered a grad student from the start and can get grad plus loans. Others, you are considered an undergrad until you get your BSN and move on to the MSN portion.
Look into programs called accelerated BSN or accelerated MSN. Programs are also called GEPN or MEPN programs. Do a google search.
Any questions, let me know! I start my program in just a few days
There are so many of these programs around that you can find one I'm sure to fit your needs.
I have been researching for months and I didn't realize they had a direct entry msn. : Jeez, where is my head. I'm sure going to need it for school. Do you know if there are any that do distance learning?
Kimji, I just googled direct entry cnm and found your post on all nurses.com. Congrads on starting your new program. I wish I could move for school but I'm going through a divorce and my mil is moving here in two weeks so I just don't see that happening.
I'm going to call Barry tomorrow and see what they say. Thanks again.
