Hi! I am new to your site and so happy I found it. I am currently working a full time job with the US Government. My dream has always been to become a RN. But with work and moving up my career it seems though my RN dreams were fading away. Recently my love for the field has joined me again and I am looking to go back to school to become a RN.
My concern is which direction to go in. I was told by a few people I could go to my local community college and get my ASN and take the NCLEX and become a nurse. But I was also informed that most hospitals are now only taking people with a BSN. Please help me figure out what I should do.
Do I just go straight to my university and go for my BSN or can I go to my local community college and get my ASN? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
