If you're absolutely set on entering a particular Bachelors program, look at what they require for prerequisites, not only for graduation but for entry to their program. You may find that by taking as much as you can at a community college, you may be able to enter the program of your choice and only have to complete the program coursework and perhaps a couple other courses, to complete your education and earn your Bachelors. If you're not so dead-set on a particular program, remember that most programs have very similar requirements/prerequisites, so you won't be taking too many "extra courses" just to meet a given program's entry requirements. Because the wait to enter a single program can be quite lengthy, I usually suggest/counsel that you should keep a sharp eye on all the programs in the area that will give you the degree you need (probably BSN given your post) and as you become qualified to apply to them, start doing so and keep at it being mindful of application cut-off dates and any other application instructions you'll need to follow. The reason I say this is because being able to follow the application process rules is part of the process too.
Since you're very likely in the New York area, you'll find that you likely need a BSN to be competitive in the job hunt as an RN.
You'll also need to have a very solid grasp of English, Science, and Math. This is because before you begin your application to a program, you'll have to take an assessment test. This test essentially shows programs how good of a handle you have on the basics and therefore, your readiness to enter the program and complete it successfully. Fortunately you won't likely have to take that test until you're just about ready to apply, so you can use your time to get very good at the basics and maximize your assessment test scores.
Something else you'll find about this site: we won't usually spoon-feed you the answers or rationales. We do tend to be kind of blunt about things because, well, that's the way we are. We do really want you to learn the material and we do want you to succeed, even if it's not ultimately in Nursing (we're biased though...
) and usually someone will generally try to point you in the direction you need to go, though it's up to you to do the work.
I hope this helps and you find yourself on the road that will eventually reach your goals! Good luck!
