Hello! I am a CA resident in the midst of a career change. I've been accepted into a ABSN program out of state that is "cheaper" (I use this word lightly) than many others. I also chose out of state due to being to impacted in CA. I am also looking into ADN programs out of state for cost, but now that I think about it I do not understand the nursing requirements. How is it possible to sit for the NCLEX with both if they have different curriculums? I have all my pre-reqs and social sciences done in CA so I am not worried about those. However, I am not really sure what to look out for in an out of state ADN program to be able to sit for the exam in CA. When I was looking for ABSN program I found something that said there are 58 credits in nursing needed and I assumed that was for a BSN, but what about an ADN? I worry about completing a program out of state and then running into trouble when it's time for the exam. Any info is appreciated, thanks!
