    Ah, I see the difference...for my program, all my pre-reqs are done and all I have left are the nursing classes...I can only take 1 nursing class a semester (unless you count the "elective" classes of med admin, pharmacology, and the preceptorship). Nur119 (semester 1) is worth 7 credits, Nur120 (semester 2) is worth 9, Nur214 (semester 3) is worth 8, and Nur215/216 (semester 4) is worth 10. The "electives" are 1 or 3 credits each, depending on which one (the preceptorship is worth 1, which I found odd).

    I am taking the ADN route to my RN for time crunch reasons...I see the courseloads for the BSN are a lot heavier, which is to be expected, but I think I will definitely work on getting my BSN after I get a job.

    Thanks everyone for your responses; I was curious as to how everyone else's courses were credited.
