CSU ADN to BSN Nursing Roadmaps

Melissa Sherman

I have been a practicing nurse for 11 years. Currently I work in telemetry at San Joaquin Community Hospital in Bakersfield. I am very grateful for the education that I received through the RN to BSN program at CSUB. In my nursing career path, it opened many career opportunities that were previously closed because I was an associateís degree nurse. I could function at the bedside correctly, but the lack of a bachelorís degree prevented me from getting management positions and from pursuing a master's degree in nursing and becoming a nurse practitioner.

I found myself drawn to the students, and volunteered with the Future Nurses of Tomorrow. I hope I have had a positive impact on them and that they enjoyed the interaction with a working nurse who was not their instructor. I have since spoken to several nurses about volunteering as well, because it was such a rewarding experience.
