    Unfortunately, none around San Francisco unless you want to go to private school. If yes, Dominican College in
    San Rafael and UOP (University of Phoenix) in Modesto.
    Good luck.

    If you are a RN and want to get your BSN, you can tried SFSU, USF, and on-line UOP.
    Good luck.

    If you go go SFSU it will take 2 yrs to finished and get your BSN that is, if you have fulfilled the prequisites.

    Thank you for your help,trolldoll.Do you know Lainey college?
    What do you think about there?They have a good nursing program?I'll probably go to cololege first and then I'll go to university.I heard RN-BSN takes a year and half. Is that wrong infomation? Please write me back again.Thank you.

    Never heard of Lainey College. The program for RN to BSN is considered two years; if you go continuously, then you may be able to finish it in about 18 months...........but most are not in a rush to do that, as they can work as RN with the ADN.

    Thank you for your reply.Then,do you know Merritt College in bay area? Do you have any recommendation for college if I go to college first. After i finish my education,I would like to work here again.With Associate degree,I can't keep my work visa,right? Please give me some advice again. Thank you for your help.

    Merritt College is a great private school, I only heard good things from that college from my co-workers who
    graduated from there.
