I graduated from UCONN with a BA in psychology a little over a year ago and recently decided I want to go back to school for nursing. I am currently looking into Goodwin college but am having some doubts because I read in some other forums that Goodwin does not give students enough "hands on" clinical experience.
I have some pre-req's done already but still need to take classes such as anatomy, micro bio and some math classes. I was wondering if anyone has taken nursing pre-req's at a community college then transferred to a state school. I would like to go back to UCONN to get a nursing degree but do not know how possible this is to do. Also, I know SCSU has an accelerated nursing program as well that is difficult to get into. My main concern is being able to get the best education as possible, without being in school for another 4 years!
Sooo my main question is, would anyone reccommend taking pre-reqs at a community college then transferring? Or would it be best to stick it out at a community college? Also, do state schools such as CCSU, UCONN or SCSU take transfer credits from community colleges for nursing programs?
I am also only interested in an RN progam! Please help~thank you!!
