    Around where I live, you can not go from one nursing program to the other, the nursing courses don't transfer, just the pre-reqs transfer. Good luck, I would contact the school you want to apply to after. I say finish the ADN program then get the RN to BSN track. That's what I am going to do I just got accepted to the ADN this fall.

    I posted this before but wanted to get some more. I will be attending a 2 year Nursing school in the fall to get an associates in nursing and take the NCLEX to get my RN certification. One of the nurses at the hospital i volunteer at said that most places (hospitals/nursing homes) are looking for nurses with a BSN. Also, i know experience helps out a lot too. Do you think i would be able to get a job with an associate's degree and possibly only volunteer-work if i cant find a job with more responsibility in the next 2 years.Also, any advice for a pre-nurse student (in regards to school/work)?

    Feedback is much appreciated.

    Thank you.

    I also already posted this and again want additional opinons. ok so i think the best route is to take an accelerated bsn program since i have a bachlors in bio...the problem is most schools have closed their apps for the fall....i have an idea but it seems kinda crazy let me know what you think. I'm acceptted to an Asn program so i'll do that in the fall and spring. In the summer a bsn program opens at another school so i may try to apply and get in. If i get in, hopefully they accept some credits from the asn. If not, i'll just retake them. If i do not get accepted into the bsn program, i'll stay with the asn. Does this plan seem reasonable? Any other ideas?
    Thanks
    Columbus State in Georgia is year-round & accepts students year-round. I believe the same with Jacksonville State University in Alabama. Look into those.

    I'm in the same boat. I didn't have any medical experience before going to nursing school. Right now, I network. The school I attend placed us in the hospitals for clinicals the first semester, so network in different hospitals there. Having clinicals so early allows for you to have almost a year's worth of experience each year. I see some opportunities for nursing students at some hospitals like DeKalb Medical & Grady. So, I'm trying to get in with ppl I have networked with. I also do some volunteer work, which places you in circles that provide opportunities for work.
