Engineering to Nursing


I need help...Please reply....I am an international student and after completing my Bachelors, I came to U.S and I finished my M.S in Electrical Engineering..I am currently volunteering for a s/w company. I wanted to pursue a career in nursing...It is not related to my fieild in anyway...but I think it gives me a great pleasure to be able to help others than getting a high salary...My Visa expires on August 2011...So I am thinking of enrolling in a Associate Degree in Nursing and complete it before i go back home...What pre requisites are required? Will I be able to get admission into any school where I can finish the pre-requisites and enroll in ADN? Will it be hard to get admitted?? Please help me...I am confused...

You really need to talk to your school to find out what your best route will be. At my College they let students with a previous Bachelors (I know I am spelling that wrong when talking about a degree) get put on the Wait list right away and let them work on their pre reqs while waiting. But all colleges are different.
