Hi! I've been looking into becoming a nurse for quite awhile now. I am currently applying for community colleges and I realized that some of these community colleges offer nursing programs. I am wondering would it be more efficient if I worked towards getting my ADN in community college then transfer to a CSU? Or fulfill my igetcs/pre-reqs and transfer to a CSU to work towards a BSN right away. Approximately how much time would it take for both routes if I went to school full-time? Also, do I NEED volunteering hours in order to major in nursing?
