I'm 43 years old in college for the first time. I will be going for my BSN. I have a full time job and am taking on 13 credit hours this semester. I can finish my nursing program prereqs by Summer 2014 and apply to the RN program and finish my AA requirements in conjunction with the program if I choose, but I'm not sure that is the wisest choice. From what I'm reading on here, the program itself is very vigorous and I may be better off finishing all my AA courses and then applying for the RN program. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
