Set your goal.

It is important that you are clear about your educational goals and expectations.

In this case, setting a goal means making a decision about the type of degree you’re going to earn.

There are three educational pathways to nursing: Associate’s Degree in Nursing (ADN), Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) and Master’s of Science in Nursing (MSN). It’s best if you understand the different types of degree options (associate’s degree or bachelor’s degree) before you choose a college.
