I have a 2 Bachelor of Science degrees, but not in nursing. Looking for an online school that has a 2nd bachelors program. Doubt one exists, but just thought I would ask.
I would look into Accelrated BSN programs for those who already hold a non-nursing Bachelors. Although, from what I understand, Accelerated BSN programs are highly competitive so be prepared. I already hold a BS in Biology. I have just finished my first semester of nursing school... I am now back in school going for my BSN this time. Although, I am in a traditional BSN program. My GPA wasn't high enough to qualify for an Accelrated BSN program in my area. Since I already have a BS in Biology, I already had the majority of nursing prereqs completed with my first degree, so I will complete the traditional BSN program in a total of 3 years. (1 semester of finishing prereqs and 5 semesters of nursing classes)

I was what my school called "TEAS exempt." My school does require the TEAS for admission, but since I already held a Bachelors Degree they did not require me to take the TEAS to be accepted into the program. Probably not all schools do this exemption, but I think it would be worth calling the schools you are considering and asking if they have such a thing.
