:heartbeat What schools offer RN -BSN for graduates of ITT Tech? I'm looking at going to ITT Tech for their associate degree program. However, I want to work for a year and then return to school for my BSN.:heartbeat
I'd say look at any conventional diploma or associate degree RN nursing program
, and forget ITT, for the same reasons the others said: You already know that you want to wind up a BSRN or higher.
In my region, we still have diploma nursing programs
, but they require so many college courses that they are equivalent to associate degree programs, may offer more clinical experience, and they usually don't care where your college credits are from, so long as the content is acceptable.
Also, ITT's cost for that RN has to be obscenely high, because their electronics and other 2-years are like $50,000 or more now.
One diploma program here costs only $12,000 but that is only the RN part and does not include all the college work. I know of one that's 28 months start to finish, starting from scratch and includes all the college, and its total cost is in the $29,999 range. An associate degree RN might be $20,000 - $25,000 at a community college or state college.
Find your state's "OneStop" website for unemployed people. Find the WIA / TRA Training Providers list, and all of the reasonable affordable RN programs should be on there, and should also have data like the total duration, total package cost with all books supplies uniforms & all, plus some salary data for the grads of it.
