Moving to Illinois Programs Discussion to elicit more responses.
Western Illinois University has a new, accredited BSN program. I don't know if WIU has an ABSN program but since you are looking at a variety of schools, from LPN to DE-MSN, you might want to consider a traditional BSN program like at WIU as well.
You might want to check Illinois State as well.I've heard good things about Illinois State but I don't know if they have an ABSN or DE-MSN program.
Doing well on the GRE would be one way to overcome a low GPA in your past. I took the GRE last fall while taking a full load in my graduate courses.
I didn't get to study as much as I would have liked and thought it was brutal! Give yourself time to study---maybe even take a prep course---if you need to take the GRE. Keep in mind, too, that the GRE is changing in August. I don't know if the current books and prep courses are geared toward the old or new versions. Just make sure that you get the right prep books and/or courses for the version that you would take.
Good luck to you on whatever you decide!
