I am going to be moving to the DC area this summer and dont know much about the area. I am looking for schools in DC or VA that have BSN programs for students that dont already have a bachelor's degree and arent RNs - so a traditional BSN program. Are there any hospitals that have their own BSN program? I am also trying to look for schools that admit in the spring as well as the fall. Any information would be appreciated
I am applying to Virginia Commonwealth, Old Dominion, University of Virignia, and George Mason but i dont feel comfortable just applying to those schools because every program is sooo competitive. If anyone knows anything about these schools please share. Thanks.
You might also consider starting out at NVCC - Northern Virginia Community College for your general ed and/or nursing prereqs, then transfer to a 4 year school like GMU or UVA to complete your BSN. In addition to the schools you mentioned, there are private schools in the DC area with BSN programs too, including Marymount Univ or Shenandoah Univ - both in northern VA. Or you could look at one of the schools in DC, including Georgetown, Catholic, or George Washington.
You might not think you could afford a private school, but you can get student loans for whatever you can't pay upfront, and pay off student loans over 10 years. Some hospitals will also assume part of your student loans if you agree to work for them after graduation.
