Hello. I'm going attend Hunter College in 2 weeks for their nursing track and didnt know that they only offered a 4-year bachlors. What I wanted to do is take 2 years of nursing school
for my associates and pass the NCLEX to become a RN so that I could move in with my boyfriend in Arkansas. After I get a job as an RN I would like to take online classes for my bachelors but I have no idea how to go about that.. I feel stuck with the 4 year program at Hunter and the nursing program is super competitive so I don't even know if I would get in. I think its too late to transfer now but is it possible to just take 1 year at my current school and then transfer to a nursing school and take another year there to earn my associates? Or would I be wasting my time and starting over? I thought it takes 2 years to get an associates but does that mean you can get it straight out of high school or does that mean taking pre-reqs and then another 2 years of school to become an RN? I feel so lost and confused right now but I know that I just want to move out and become an RN hopefully soon. Anyone know what options are there that are best suited for my wants?

Yes I know I should've done my research and I deeply regret not doing so.. What happens if I don't get into the nursing program? For hunter I think it is 1 year of pre reqs then we can apply to the nursing program. A lot of people are telling me to have a backup plan if I don't get in but I don't know, what can I do? Should I apply to another 4 year college if I don't get in? I'm so confused
I thought you were already accepted into the program. What I would do is make a list of all the schools that you think you have a chance of getting accepted too. Then, I would look up all the schools prerequsites and create a game plan of which classes you are going to take each semester, and also factor in the time that you would apply for the nursing program at each school. After that, you should get a general idea of the time frame in order in which you'd complete the program. I'd recommend you do this for the BSN and ADN track. For all you know, there might be some BSN programs where you'd get done in the same amount of time as an ADN program. Also, you should have a backup plan and apply to as many schools as possible.
