Hey there!! My name is Hilary, I'm kinda new here. Been 'lurking' the past few days on these boards, but this is my first post. I have a question or two...
Is it possible (like for someone right out of highschool wanting to become a nurse) to go to a Jr college for 2 years to get down the main academic courses (like anatomy & physiology, etc), then the next 2 years transfer to a University to take the nursing courses for those 4 semesters? I was just wondering..

Yes it is possible. What I recommend you do is see the school that has a BSN program you plan to attend. Ask them about taking all your prerequisites at a junior college and make sure they tell you to take WHAT WILL TRANSFER THERE! It works best when you transfer within the same state, of course. Make sure all you take articulates into the 4-year program, so you don't waste money and time.
You don't have to go the ADN route if you want a BSN; I personally would not. (I hold an ADN but am working on a BSN now). Just remember, careful planning is needed.
See a college counselor soon about taking your pre-requisite classes for nursing first, since this is what you will need to do anyway, no matter *WHAT* RN program you will attend. Make sure if you are transferring, you talk to BOTH schools for the best articulation. Good luck!
