ADN or BS in Bio then Second Degree BSN?
To make a long story short, I am in a biology program at a four-year university on a scholarship, but after spending a lot of time volunteering at hospitals and shadowing, I realize I actually want to be a nurse. I can't afford to transfer to another 4-year university without scholarship help, and I can't afford to transfer to the nursing program at my university because I would be at least 1-2 years behind, and I could not afford the tuition when my 4-year scholarship is up. I'm wondering what would be the best option for me in terms of both affordability and my ability to get a job once I graduate. These are the three ideas I've come up with:
1. Keep trying to transfer to my university's nursing program, knowing it might be several semesters before they have a spot for me and take out loans to finish the years beyond my 4-year scholarship.
2. Finish my degree in biology then apply to a Accelerated Second Degree BSN program. (Pros: would have BSN, cons: would still need loans to cover the extra year(s), no guarantee I'd have the stats to get into an accelerated program)
3. Transfer to a ADN program, knowing I could go back for my BSN later. (Pros: would be an RN without going over 4 years of school, cons: harder to be hired without a BSN (?))
