    Hi, so I am working on my prerequisites for my BSN. I already have a Bachelor’s degree. Knowing my learning style ABSN was out of play so I turned my focus to a state college BSN program. One program had a 11 prerequisites and 7 had to be completed by admission.

    So I signed up for pre calc this summer and chem 1/AP 1 this fall. Things seemed like a plan. However, pre calc over the summer I really struggled and didn’t want to take a bad grade so I dropped out. Now I could take it this fall, but really want to focus on good grades and not overload myself on prerequisites.

    I am thinking of applying to 3 community colleges in December to an Associates Nursing Program instead.

    I am a bit worried on Jon prospects with an ASN. My nursing manager says you won’t be able to work here anymore, which is true it’s a Magnet Hospital. Also the State will only allow BSNs to work as nurses. The job prospects are slim for ADNs in CT.

    There could be some grain of truth to all that. Also a few coworkers encourage me to wait another year so I can apply for my BSN.

    My goal is to be in a program by the time I am 30 next year.

    What’s your thoughts should I wait or go for it?

    I think you should go for your BSN. Don’t be so hard on yourself with the prerequisites. I just finished up mines and start my clinicals in October and I’m glad I took my time of course being done would amazing but you have to go at your own pace so you’ll be successful. GoodLuck!!!

    I would recommend you go to BSN.
    Write a concise essay, which addresses your prior education and work experience, as well as how you expect the BSN to enhance your professional career goals. If you can, please incorporate the following:
    – Experiences and motivations which have contributed significantly to your decision to pursue the BSN degree
    – Based on your professional experience, specify qualities that you feel are essential to nursing.
    Good luck!
