Degree Nursing Online Program School
Q: I'll be graduating shortly with a BS degree in electrical and computer
engineering. I'm trying to get into nursing.
However, I noticed that the University of Phoenix is offering a BSN
online. I'm often wary of online education, as some people don't fully
Then again, Phoenix is a major, accredited school, unlike some of
those for-profit online institutions.
Also, my ultimate goal is to get into nurse anesthesia, as quickly and
cheaply as possible.
Any feedback on Phoenix's program? Am I barking up the right tree for
A:There is no easy route to getting a nursing degree. There are several hundred hours of clinical experience (lab time) involved. I believe that the Phoenix BSN program is for people who already have an RN license from a two or three year program and who do not need clinical experience, or who can arrange it on their own. Contact them for exact details. Since you are not already employed in nursing, I would advise against it. With your degree in EE/CS I think that you would find undergraduate nursing courses to be excessively elementary and slow paced for you. I suggest that you apply to a graduate program instead. Note that CRNA requires a master's degree anyway. This school http://www.nursing.yale.edu/index.html is close to where you live and has excellent master's and doctorate of nursing programs. ........Agreed....keep people like this away from patients, who need someone who is focused on them, not treading on their heads as a stepping stone. I hope his honesty in revealing his intentions keeps any right-minded nursing program from letting him take the place of someone who might actually have a vocation for caring. One more thing: I am an honest, hard-working, and compassionate/loyal worker. For nursing, I would be part of a workforce of underrepresented gender. I admit that nursing isn't my first choice but, then again, how many people do you actually know are in their first-choice professions? I am willing to work hard in field and not make the same mistake I encountered in my undergrad years in being pre-med. It is time for me to move on in life and begin to establish a career, make money, buy a house, and perhaps use some of my savings to attract a spouse so I wouldn't get too lonely. So the fact that nursing isn't my first choice career and isn't that glamorous ( look around you and accept the facts, instead of trying to get me started on this again ) does NOT mean that I would be a careless, obnoxious nurse with no feeling s and prospects that all or most of you have. In fact, I am rather finding all of you so-called dedicated nurses to be the most repulsive group I met in my life. With that in mind, after I get into nurse anesthesia, I will work even harder and become a superior being in order to stay away from the same level of people like you.
