I am currently enrolled in a 4 year university and I am considering transferring to a community college. I started out as a freshman with the intentions of becoming a nursing major but I allowed myself to get discouraged by the science courses, therefore leading me to another major. Now approaching my junior year with a major I hate, I am having a lot of regret. It is too late to switch to nursing at my current school (I go to a private school and it would be expensive to have to stay at least 3 more years). Would it be a smart option to start in the fall at a community college as a nursing major? I looked into accelerated BSN programs but I just don't think I have it in me to continue college, knowing that at the end of my program I won't be a nurse. I welcome any advice! Thank you!

I agree with caliotter. Talk to an advisor. To add a few thoughts. True, many areas are pushing for BSN prepared nurses, but the ADN nurse isn't totally our yet, but of course like the previous poster said that can be heavily influenced by your area. In a CC you will more than likely have a smaller class size, and as a side note I am in a ADN student who just got out of school for the summer, for a few weeks, and all of my class is scheduled to take NUR 210 and NUR 212 in the fall, and the name of the latter class is leadership and management, just saying.
