If you have never taken Microbiology and have an RN license, then I would suggest American Sentinel University. Their only pre-req is an active, unemcumbered nursing license. It's all nursing courses which are 8 weeks in length. If time is the only issue, then like BrillyD said, Excelsior College has an exam-based Micro exam that you can study for and test for credit when you are ready for the exam. I did anatomy and micro this way with Excelsior. If you hope to go further than a BSN one day, American Sentinel does require Statistics with the MSN. I dare to assume that at some point, your transcripts will have to reflect micro as you climb the ladder, though. All of Excelsior's general pre-reqs are study at your own pace exams. I'm doing their RN-BSN program instead of ASU simply because I've already completed most of the general eds while I was doing their ASN program, with one more exam to go. At the time that I started this, ASU wasn't accepting financial aid as they do now and my job was not as steady with hours back then as it is now, or else I would have gotten my degree from them. But EC is great for the BSN since I was able to get Statistics done from an outside source (also at my own pace) that they accepted.
Anyway, good luck!
