  1. Does a program that will let you go from ASN to BSN WITHOUT licensure in between exist?

    Not that I know of.

    ASN (or diploma) to BSN programs are designed to meet the educational needs of practicing and/or experienced RNs, so I don't think you will find a program that will accept an unlicensed ASN graduate.

    May I ask why you are looking for such a program?

    I was looking for this type of program so I wouldn't have to stress ocer N-Clex and then jump into studying again. I have since decided, just take the N-Clex, go to work, and jump into a BSN program just to get it all out of the way. I think I will be working in Med Surg, and hopefully doing some travel (I've been in contact with two agencies that don't require experience before travel), all while doing my BSN. All in hopes of securing a management position, in an area of my choice; possibly LTC, Home Health, or a clinic. If that is possible, I will also keep a part time hospital staff position.

    The NCLEX is nothing to stress over. When I took mine I was given a brochure that said most people will pass. I've heard most who don't fail because of a language barrier.
