It really depends on where you want to go to school at and what kind of degree you want to get. I would recommend doing your general education classes (English, math, lit, language) at a community college because it will save you a ton of money. From what I have seen most of the general class for nursing programs
will transfer within the mnscu schools. So General Bio, A & P and Microbio. Each school has different requirements but it's good to leave your options open and be willing to apply at many different colleges.
Going to a community college will be much cheaper for the actual classes (if you are looking to get your two year) but they are highly competitive. Schools like St. Kates are much more expensive but you can start your nursing classes almost right away.
The only thing I can recommend is make sure you grades are stellar especially if you are going with the community colleges. Also get your CNA and start working right away since many colleges require you to work a certain number of hours in direct patient care!
