RHC81 Posted January 23, 2012 Share Posted January 23, 2012 For family reasons, I'm postponing my application to PA school for a few years. In the meantime, I'm thinking of getting my BSN (RN) because I'm so close to it anyway. I have a bachelor's degree already, but my field (journalism) is over-saturated. I'd practice as a nurse for two to three years, then apply to PA school. My thought process is that the BSN will be (a) better job security/chances, (b) great HCE for PA school, and © something I can support my family with until I enter PA school. My worry is that PA school adcomms will wonder why I got my BSN and then turned around 2-3 years later and applied to PA school. Or am I overthinking this? (Although I know some people might say "Get your MSN," I want the intense science background and heavier clinical hour requirements that PA schools offer. I have met excellent professionals who are NPs and PAs, but I know that PA fits my personality better.) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
