I'm a year away from completing a BA in Spanish and after graduation (and getting married) I'm planning to go to nursing school. I started doing research on different schools in March and thought the accelerated BSN program would be a nice fit, since I'd only need to be in school for 1-2 years. However, these are only offered in certain areas and I'm not sure where I want to go to school. Part of me wants to be closer to California, where I'm from, but part of me loves the midwest and wants to stay in the Kansas City area.
I know my options for schools will open dramatically if I opt for a regular BSN or ADN degree instead. My concern, however, is I want to be able to use the prereqs I've already accumulated (and those I plan to take at a CC after graduation) toward my nursing degree. I KNOW this is possible for accelerated programs (since that's kind of their purpose), but will "regular" degree programs accept prereqs that were taken at another University and used toward another degree?
If so, what's the advantage of doing the accelerated program?
