I'm a recent VN graduate and have been diligently searching high and low for the smoothest and fastest transition into an ADN program. As you all may know, the community college system is lacking and it can take years just to finish prerequisites. I'm now in my 30's and am willing to sacrifice paying a premium for quick admission into a program. American Career College here in CA now offers a 20 month all inclusive ADN program. This means all prerequisites and general coarse work are included in this time frame. I have hopes of getting my BSN at Mt Saint Mary's university, then moving on to get my masters and become a CRNA. I'm afraid my plans will be ruined because traditional colleges may not accept my units from a technical college. Has anyone considered or gone this route before? For RN to BSN most schools
will advertise you only need an active non restricted License, but I'm afraid there may be more to the story. PLEASE HELP ME MY FRIENDS!

I got my ADN at a technical college first and went on to finish my BSN online through University of Texas. All of my credits transferred over. I'm also starting an NP program in the Fall at University of South Carolina, and had no problems again.
I guess I should add in here that both schools
I've attended were/are current in their accreditations.
