    Thank you litepath!
    Do you have any advice for someone applying to nursing school? I have a family and will need to work, if possible. I have a B.S. in psychology and a D.C. in chiropractic and would like to get a job in a hospital in the mean time, if that is possible. I was told that I could get a ADN degree online. I am applying for the accelerated BSN. I am not sure if one is better than the other. Any thoughts?
    Thanks for taking the time to respond!

    You can't get an ADN online - at least without doing the clinicals. Which one is better? It all depends on what you're looking to do. Accelerated BSNs are expensive and usually require so many pre-reqs that you'd be better off going to a CC. If you're in a hurry for a BSN, then the accelerated program is best.
