@jesssamesssa:  I know exactly how you feel.  I actually transfered schools and it worked out better for me.  Origionally I had 2 years left to get my RN at a jr college that required me to have my RN.  But now where I’m going to school I’ll have my BSN in 3 years + a minor in whatever I choose.  Also I don’t have to have my CNA at all.  It a whole lot better degree as well and I won’t have a problem getting a job.


My suggestion is if there is a college to get your BSN I’d transfer there.  I’m not sure about where you live, but where I do in order to get a job you pretty much HAVE to have your BSN.  They won’t hire LPN’s and RN’s.

@cupcakebride2013:  A person with a BSN is still an RN, just like an ASN (if they passed the NCLEX).  I have an ASN and haven’t had any problems finding jobs in TN or GA.  

Nursing schools are competitive anywhere right now because people want to do something that “guarantees” them a job out of school.  In some areas of the country it does; in some it doesn’t.  In my area, we couldn’t apply to a nursing program unless we had at least Bs in A&P and Micro.  If yours will let you, I’d go ahead and apply and hurry up and get your CNA hours.

I would maybe talk to your work and see if you can get some time off so you can finish your hours for school first. I know that might make money tight but its something to consider

Spanish isn’t keeping you from your degree…YOU are keeping yourself from a degree.  From a financial standpoint, it makes no sense to be almost done with a BA degree and then go back to school for something totally different. I am almost fluent in Spanish and I have already started to study a different language. I did not grow up speaking it, so like everything else, you get out of something what you put into it.
