Hi! I'm Stacy. I am a 38 year old mom of four returning to school to persue a nursing degree. I have registered for Spring classes at CCRI but am kind of second guessing that decision. I guess I know that it would be a better use of time to go for the BSN. I mean, the difference in time it would take isn't really too much. So, I have been contemplating applying to RIC. I am wondering whether they are really open to older students. I graduated from high school in 1990, did not take SAT's back then and do not have any college credits that would transfer. Do any of you have any info on the application process for older students, is it competitive to get into the college itself (not necessarily the nursing program, I'll worry about THAT later). I don't know whether it would be better to do my pre req's at CCRI and then try to transfer, stay at CCRI till I get me associates then bridge to BSN or try for RIC right from the start.
Any ideas on what the best route would be for me? Thanks!
