Conrats on your decision to move to the desert. I'll post a few links here for you, but I'm sure you have most of this info already:
approved nursing prograns by the AZBON
MCC nursing program link... click on advanced placement on this link:
I don't know anyone in the U of P LPN-BSN program, but I have heard some rumblings about it, some good, some bad... I do know that it is an expensive option though.
If I were you, I would just put in the advanced placement application through Maricopa (the 2nd link). All of the Comm. College programs in Phoenix are linked and you would not only be applying to one but applying to all of them. I'm also pretty sure this would be you least expensive option also. MCC tuition for nursing school
is still very affordable... I would be surprised if you paid more than $3000-5000 (including books) for the 2 blocks that you need.
