There are pretty much two nursing schools
in this area....Mountain Empire Community College and University of Virginia at Wise.
MECC offers only a ASN program and has about 150 applicants for about 55 slots...they require Chemistry before you enter the program, but will let you take AP once you are accepted...they are changing their entrance exam for the nursing program to another test, but the jury is still out on which one they will implement. They offer a part-time/weekend program as well.
UVaWise offers a BSN program, but the kicker there is that if you have a Bachelor degree from another college, they make you take several courses from their GENERAL education core to "match" what you already have...in other words, even if you have a BS degree in another dicipline, you'll be treated just like any other transfer student and they will transfer course by course, and what doesn't meet their criteria has to be taken.
I'm not sure where I'll be going this fall...but we'll see.
