What RN to BSN program requires the least prereqs

  1. 0
    I really don't feel like wasting my time taking a bunch of pre-reqs to get into a program. I've looked into two so far, and both of them I would need to take 12 or so credits to get in. Is there any that don't? You just need a RN license to get started?

    I believe the number of credit hours required for a bachelor's degree is pretty standard regardless of your major or your school.

    Therre are a lot of programs that let you in with just the diploma or your ADN.

    Yes I understand that. So far both programs I'm looking at I'd need to take quite a few classes(college algebra, 2 more credits A&P, English/Comp II) before I could even start their program. I'm trying to find one that doesn't have those requirements. I don't know if their is one, but it's worth a shot to look. Basically, I'm looking for whatever program I can complete the fastest.

    The reason they have some classes you have to complete prior to starting the nursing portion is because the nursing classes themselves will be more beneficial with those classes under your belt already. AFAIK there aren't any without those basic pre-reqs. Besides, if the number of required credit hours is the same for all schools and majors then it doesn't matter if you have to take those classes prior to or after starting the nursing portion because the time it takes to complete your degree will be the same.

    IMO if you want to finish quickly look for programs that offer an accelerated track so you can take more classes at a time. That would be most efficient I think.

    *** Yes, Nova Southeastern in Florida. No prereqs. Just type the school name into Google.

    $495 a credit hour! I think I'll keep looking, so far Ball states seems to be the best for my needs.

    How about University of Dundee? They are inexpensive. NLNAC accredited.
