Sounds like you have a lot of experience in the medical field and a great GPA so that will help.
Here are some junior colleges: (these are all lottery based for nursing)
Sacramento City College: http://wserver.scc.losrios.edu/~nursing/
Sierra College, Roseville: http://www.sierracollege.edu/program...ing/index.html
American River College, Sac: http://wserver.arc.losrios.edu/~edhealth/nursing.html
Samuel Merritt, Private college. They have a campus in Sac that has Masters Programs and ASBN:
4-year college: (based on merit)
Sacramento State University: http://www.hhs.csus.edu/NRS/
Within commuting to Sac:
Yuba College, Yuba City: http://www.yccd.edu/nursing/
Los Medanos, Pittsburg: http://www.losmedanos.edu/nursing/rn.asp
(lottery) - probably 1-1/2 hours away. They only accept applicants once a year, but they generally get less of them (about 400 ~ which is still a lot)
Solano Community College: http://www.solano.edu/degrees/Catalo...%20Nursing.htm
All the ones listed above have nursing programs
. Folsom Lake College (maybe 30 mins away) offers prereq classes but doesn't have a nursing program. Here's their website: http://www.flc.losrios.edu/
. Also Cosumnes River College offers prerequisite classes. Cosumnes, American River, Sac City College & Folsom are all under the umbrella of the Los Rios college system so if you take prereq courses at one of their campuses you don't have to worry about getting transcripts if you apply at another one of their colleges, which is convenient.
Most of the colleges have a recency requirement for your science classes, generally 7 years. So if you've taken micro before and it's been longer than that you'll probably have to retake it.
It's a good thing you're doing your research now since the schools can have different requirements. Good luck!!!
