I'm about to finish up school later this June and I was hoping to pursue a Bachelor's Degree while studying for the NCLEX-RN (I want to take my time and study for the NCLEX instead of studying for an NCLEX right away just because a school's deadline is in August.
So anyone know of an ADN-BSN program in Texas that's online or in the Houston area? I've tried some searches but no-go. I'm coming from California if that matters....

Just to clarify and let's say this is the worst case scenario: What happens if you do not pass the NCLEX? Do these programs automatically kick you out? I'd imagine that would be a waste of time and money...
I have absolutely no idea! I guess it never occurred to me that I would fail
I supposed at worst you'd have to sit out a semester until you pass? UHV is on a quarter system, so you'd have your first set of courses completed at 8 weeks.
The thing to remember is that they are still RN-BSN programs, so there's not a clinical component. The longer you wit to test, the more of your skills you'll lose, and employers know that. The more fresh you are off relevant experience, the better, and being in a BSN program won't protect you from that. So I wouldn't plan on spending ages preparing.
