I'm hoping for some guidance from you all.
I live in South Florida and have been working towards applying to the RN or BSN program here, however there is a possibility that my Husband will be getting transferred in the next month or so to Chattanooga for work. He is guaranteed 2 years of work there, so we would relocate as a family once he gets settled. I am panicking over the prospect of moving!
My plan was to complete all the pre-reqs for my local community college, as well as the university the offers a BSN program and apply to both since they are competitive. I have only been taking a few classes a semester since I work FT and I want to get the best grades possible, now when I am so close to being ready to apply this move is putting a wrench in my plans!
I have to figure this out before applying to the program, if I apply and get accepted I won't be able to make the move with him.
I have completed a good portion of classes I need for my associates degree, as well as those needed for the BSN program just to be safe.
Since the pre reqs here are more than the pre reqs I have seen listed at the schools in Tenn. I feel pretty good about the schools I have reviewed, in fact the Associates in Nursing degree is a full 10 credits shorter if I get it in Tennessee instead of Florida!
So far I have taken 37 credits, here are the classes I have completed:
Statistics (STA 2023)
Human Growth and Development (DEP 2004)
General Psych. (PSY 2012)
Art Appreciation (ARH 1000) - this counts as a Humanities course for me, which 2 are required for the RN program.
Nutrition (HUN 1201)
History (AMH 2020)
Ancient world- medieval period (HUM 2211) again, another Humanities, this is the required writing intensive humanities course.
World History (WHO 1030) another writting intensive course
Biological Science I (BSC 1010) Lecture and Lab
Composition I (ENC 1101)
Composition II (ENC 1102)
Intro. Sociology (SYG 1000)
(I have A's and B's in all of these classes, with the exception of Nutrition which I took at the beginning of my return to school and it was online, I planned on retaking the course here as it is a pre-req that weighs on your points for acceptance, not sure if it would matter for me up there, if the C would hurt me or not?)
My fall classes start on 8/27 and I am taking A& P 1 and Spanish (since foreign language is a university/BSN requirement here)
Here are my questions:
What are my options as far as schooling close to Chattanooga for RN or a BNS program?
I have seen Chatt State when I search, but a lot of other places pop up as well, what are my options as far as public, community and private schools in this area?
Is there a school in N. Ga that is relatively close that could be an option?
I see that Chem is a pre Req there for the A.S. in Nursing program, so that is a class I have to get out of the way before I apply to the program as it isn't even a course required in the A.S program here!) I realize I will get the most information from speaking with an advisor, I just want to narrow down which schools to speak with about the possibility of a transfer.
Thanks in Advance!!
