    i would check with your college, or colleges that you want to attend.

    i have never heard of this [not saying there isn't one that exists], i have only ever heard of getting your ADN and then BSN or diving right in and doing the BSN.

    good luck!

    Have you taken any prereqs for BSN programs? That's probably your only choice of your school doesn't sponsor an early admission program.

    RN-BSN programs are for RNs - people who have graduated from a program and passed the NCLEX. So you're not going to find one just floating around.

    You might want to be careful about the details of the graduation requirements at the schools. Many schools require that X amount of hours have to be taken consecutively and exclusively at their school. That way somebody that is close to graduating can't transfer in and take one semester of classes and graduate with a degree from the unoversity.

    The reason is it wouldn't be fair for someone to take 128 hours of classes at a less prestigous or cheaper school and then take their last 12 at the more famous school but still get the same degree as someone who did.

    Please do not take this the wrong way... If you want to be a nurse, then stop looking for shortcuts! The path to getting your BSN is supposed to be tough and taking shortcuts will not get you where you want to be.
    I understand the path to get a BSN is supposed to be tough. I understand that some ADN programs are connected to universities that allow you to complete your BSN at the same time, correct me If I am wrong.

    When I meant shortcut, I didnt mean it in a way to hurriedly finish my BSN without learning the rigorous curriculum of a nurse. I meant It in a way where I can find all the options that are available to me so I can finish in a timely manner.

    Anyway, thanks for your advice

    Santa monica college- cal state uni. Dominguez hills. (rn-bsn while taking adn)

    good luck
    Do you mean that santa monica college and Dominguez Hills allows you to take courses credited toward your bsn while you are in the adn program? I thought santa monic was a community college, so how would this be possible. I understand Dominguez is a 4 year college, so it may be be probable. Just asking to clarify. I will call them to make sure. Thanks!!!

    IF you are in the nursing program at Santa Monica or stuck on the wait list there you can qualify to take BSN classes at CSU.

    If you're in another program, it isn't applicable unless you're considering going to sit on the wait list at Santa Monica instead.

    I'm not really sure. But what I have done is: I looked up all of the required courses for the bsn/msn program I would like to bridge to after my ADN and I have been fulfilling those courses. Not everyone likes to take on 13-15 credit hours a semester but it's worth it to me. After this semester I will only be like 5 classes away from completing all of the required classes (besides the nursing ones of course). I'm waiting now to hear if I made it into the ADN program for the Fall. I don't think taking shortcuts is really the way to go. Anyways, after the ADN i will receive my BSN after two semesters since I have those classes done. Good luck! hope you find a solution!

    Oh and it is recommended on the bsn/man school I want to attends website that all
    Of the prereqs be taken at a cc or university where you live before applying. So that's a plus!

    Hi! Yes, it is possible to do this in some circumstances depending on where you live. I happen to be in Wyoming, and the University of Wyoming has a special LEAP track whereby Wyoming ADN students may simultaneously pursue the university's online RN-BSN program. I was able to apply to the university program immediately after my ADN application was approved and started taking classes for both programs in the fall of 2010--I just finished my ADN program last month and now have only a few classes remaining to finish the BSN as well, so I am very thankful for the way it has worked out. I do think, though, that this is probably not the norm--I looked at a number of different programs back in 2010, and UW was the only university I could find that allowed early entry like this. (We only have one university in this state, and they go out of their way to work with Wyoming community college students). Good luck!

    Here in Arizona there's a new program that's called concurrent enrollment. I'll be starting this summer. I was required to have all pre and co-requisite done for both the RN and BSN. I'll be doing the RN program during the day and at the same time, taking my BSN courses on line. After 4 semesters, I'll graduate with my ADN, take the NCLEX, then take one more semester of classes on line before graduation with my BSN. It is very rigorous.(BTW, I did already have a bachelor's but it wasn't required to get into the program.) Here's a link:
