- 0Jun 16, '10 by MsAshleyThanks for this information! I am definitely going to look into this and apply! I have been trying to go the RN or BSN route but it seems like they are so competitive and there aren't enough schools to go around. I am constantly worrying about everything when it comes to nursing and I just want to get a good start already!!
