I am interested in attending Nursing School but I have a few questions and I was hoping someone could answer them for me. I am looking into attending a college within St. Charles County, Chesterfield or St. Louis. I have checked into some colleges, however the passing rates of the closest colleges are not so well. I have heard St. Charles County Community College has a bad reputation for credits not transferring if you want to pursue a B.S. degree, can anyone help me?

I don't know exactly where you live, but the majority of the colleges in this area have pretty good pass rates and would be excellent choices for nursing school.
If you're looking for a community college (ADN), the St. Louis Community Colleges all have excellent reputations and good pass rates. I haven't heard (or can't remember) reading that St. Charles has problems with transfer of credits; I knew several people who graduated from there where I was working and never heard that was a concern. I understood theirs to also be a good program.
I have only read good things about the universities in our area also -- UMSL, and Maryville sound like they have good programs (Maryville being in the Chesterfield vicinity).
It would probably be prudent to talk to advisors at these colleges, see what prereqs, etc. you need to complete to be admitted; wait times; and other particulars for their programs. That will be the best way for you to determine which program fits your needs/timeframes, etc.
