You're only 20. You've got time to do this "right". Start taking classes at the community college level and get LOTS of classes out of the way that route....start inquiring at the community colleges and universities about their programs.
You might now feel that "i don't want anything other than my associates"
but at your age, you can't possibly know what you might want in the future. You may very well decide one day after a few years in a hospital that you want your CRNA, or to teach new nurses in a college, or become a nurse practitioner. You limit yourself greatly by thinking you need a quick fix today.
My suggestion is you look for something more traditional in a college setting. The cost will be much less in the long run, it will only take slightly longer, and your options will be greater in the future.
I went to school with a person who did Stanford Brown for part of their degree and they are extremely sorry they did that.
This is all my
worth.....really do your homework on this one kiddo....
