BSN schools accepting junior transfers?


I'm currently a sophomore looking to eventually become a PMHNP. By the end of the spring semester, I'll have completed the prereqs for a BSN program. The problem is most schools have students begin nursing courses in their freshman and sophomore years, so if granted admission I'd have to spend one or two extra years going to school. This would cost quite a bit of money I don't want to spend if avoidable.

To avoid the extra cost I've been looking for programs that allow students to begin nursing courses as a junior and finish in two years(four total). I've found some SUNY schools do this, as well as TJU. The NY schools would be around 30 thousand a year since I live in PA and I don't really want to stay in NY if I don't have to. TJU wants to dictate every class students take and I'd be unable to take all the classes they require by next Fall.

I'm looking for programs that accept BSN students as juniors, preferably on the Eastern part of the country but any colleges would be nice to know of. I have good grades and a most of the required science courses on my transcript as of now, but not the 4.0 some places are looking for. I'd appreciate any info., thanks.

Hasn't anyone been in a similar situation? Any info helps.

The BSN program I attended let students in to take nursing courses as juniors; however one had to have completed most of their pre-req's.

I to a part-time accelerated program.

I'm in PA, Philadelphia area if that matters.

There are many programs that will let one in, as long as the pre-req's match up, but it is dependent on the school; it would be best to find out what schools you are interested in, as well as what options that they have to offer as well.
