I'm currently getting my associates at a community school for liberal arts due to the schools waiting list for their nursing program is ridiculously long. I was looking towards going to school to be a RN. I wanted some advice about going towards that whether I have to go for my Associates in nursing first, or what is the next step. Also if the credits transferring in help at all. And if any schools online offer it as well. I know some schools have the RN-BSN, and have it online but that requires you having an RN first. So i was wondering where I would have to start. Any advice helps a lot!! Thanks !!

You need your associate's degree at least to get your RN. And it has to be an associate's in nursing not art. Not many credits from an art degree will transfer to a science/nursing degree. Have you looked into LPN programs at your college?

You can do the ADN program at your current school, or apply for other schools in the area (or anywhere you would be willing to move). Consider traditional BSN programs, too- you never know.

You cannot do your ADN or a traditional BSN program online. There are skills and clinical elements that must be done with an instructor present.

You might want to start by looking into which classes you may have already taken that would transfer towards an associates in nursing ADN. A lot of your general ed classes (math, english, psych) will be required for ADN too. Then look at the science classes that will be required at your local nursing schools. Most schools require Anatomy, Microbiology, Physiology and Chem. I have taken a lot of my non-science classes online. All science and nursing classes will have to be taken on campus.

Good luck!
