    I handed in yet another nursing application today to CCRI. Lincoln day program. We'll see what happens. In the meantime, I'll take violin and piano lessons and maybe get a few gigs.

    It depends. URI's program is the most difficult, especially chemistry, and if you are working while going to school it will be extra difficult... I only know a few students who can finish the URI program while working on the side and they are all exceptionally energetic, type A people. But in the end it will be worth it because the program is great it is just very demanding.

    Rhody 34, RIC has a RN to BSN program. This program is ONLY for students who hold a RN license. Im in the same EXACT boat as you. You should really look into this program. It appears you only need to take 4 classes....not bad Plusssssss...alot of places do tuition reimbursement. You can work as a nurse and continue your degree... Good Luck.

    Thanks Jada! Thats what Ive been hearing! Getmeoutofthehouse- I already hold a BA from URI and have already completed Chem and Organic Chem from a previous degree there, so I dont think I'd have to take it again. Ive actually heard the only "difficult" course was research... and community, leadership, etc. were "a breeze"... heard that from numerous people. From what I've heard though, I've been told RIC is a better RN to BSN program regardless of my previous URI degree... so I'm thinking RIC will be the route I take. I graduate from CCRI this May... cant wait!
