It is a point system. Go to http://nursing.sdsu.edu
to find out what gets you points.
I'm not aware of any favor given to local students for the nursing program itself, but there is a higher GPA requirement for non-local transfer students applying to the university. You need to be accepted by the university first.
Try to get A&PII at a different community college... there are a lot of local options for this course.
You need to spend some time on at http://www.sdsu.edu
, and then talk to a counselor at sdsu about transferring (don't trust your community college counselor!!!), and, possibly, set up an appointment to talk to someone in the nursing program about your admission.
Out of state courses are fine, as long as they're from an accredited college or university. Check out https://sunspot.sdsu.edu/pubred/!tap.disp
for the transfer admission planner.
You need to have your prereqs done by the end of fall 2007 for spring 2008 admission.

You cannot condense the program. They are considering shortening the program to 5 semesters, but I don't know what will come of that.
Last, don't count on message board advice on something like this... really dig into the transfer admission requirements on the web sites and make sure you have everything lined up just right. Do you have health care volunteering or work experience? Are you bilingual? Have you had a leadership role or supervisory experience at work?
With that said, message me if you need any advice after you've looked over all that info. I'd be glad to help.
