Hi, I am sure this is a question that has been asked before, but I need to ask it again. My ultimate goal is to be an RN, but I am not sure of my best option. Should I enroll in a LVN program and then apply for the bridge to RN or just do the prerequisites and apply to a community college program for the Associate in Nursing program? I would want to finish all my prerequsites at a community college anyways since I want to be licensed to practice outside of California. I would appreciate all advice. Thank you.

Apply to both programs and take which ever you get accepted to. Increase your changes as much as you can, chances are you will have a long hard application road ahead of you, i dont know anyone who wasnt on a wait list of did multiple rounds of applications
It's not true that all nursing schools have long waiting lists. In my area, it was actually a lot harder to get into LPN school because 200+ people applied for 24 spots and I still don't get how they picked those people; I really think you had to know someone because the only person I know who got in KNEW someone.
I got into nursing school first try and none of the BSN programs I know of have waiting lists. Actually I only heard of one here and it was an ASN program and they just went to a points system I believe. Actually, the other ASN did the points system too.
