Have you looked at the RN program at Wright State University? Since you already have a B.A. you've already got a lot of what you need for the bachelor's degree anyway. Since most universities have their quirky little requirements for their bachelor's degrees, you could be taking any required classes that WSU would require while you are hanging out on the waiting list to get into the nursing classes. Cedarville University in Cedarville, Ohio also has a BSN program. Xavier University in Cincinnati has a Master's degree in nursing direct entry program. It is specifically designed for people who already have a bachelor's degree in another field.
The ADN programs in Dayton are at Sinclair Community College and Kettering College of Medical Arts at the Kettering Medical Center in Kettering, Ohio.
There is an RN diploma program at Community Hospital School of Nursing in Springfield, Ohio.
I suggest you get in contact with these schools as they are all within the Dayton area to get specifics. If you have to get onto a waiting list find out what gets you on the list and get on them as soon as possible. Sinclair, particularly, has a waiting list for most of their allied health programs.
Does your job have any tuition reimbursement plan? Also, I would check the financial aid offices at each of these schools to see what kind of money you might be able to get outside of loans. Sometimes there are odd little tuition programs out there that you would never know about without asking. We learned recently that because one of my sister-in-laws could trace her geneology back to the American Revolution, her kids could have qualified for some scholarship
at Ohio State University. Go figure! Also, a steel mill my father worked at for years set up a scholarship program for the children of those particular millworkers. I could have gotten a lot of my tuition paid from this scholarship fund, but never knew about it because I hadn't checked on any financial aid.
With your college background I wouldn't even think of going the LPN route. I'm not meaning to slam LPNs, but you're already halfway to a BSN, so it seems reasonable to keep on going forward. Don't lament on what you lack in requirements and being on waiting lists. While you're waiting you could be taking classes you need. One or two classes each semester or quarter start to add up after awhile. This is how I did my ADN to BSN since I also had to keep working. I had all my pre-reqs for my bachelor's degree and the BSN nursing classes completed before I even got into those upper division classes. In my final, senior year of my BSN program I worked part time so I could focus only on my nursing classes. By looking at these different programs and planning ahead, you can do the same. Good luck!
