I'm looking at going back to school for my nursing degree. I have a BA from Hofstra University, so I've been told that a lot of my general credits will transfer.
I'm 35 with a mortgage and other responsibilities, so it's not feasible for me to quit my job and go to school full-time. My initial plan of action was to take care of my science pre-reqs at maybe Nassau or another community college and then apply to Nursing schools, but I saw that BMCC has a part-time evening/weekend program.
I also just read the post that the red tape there can be a horror to deal with.
So just wondering if it's worth to even try getting into that program (40 students seems like ultra competitive to me!) or just do my pre-reqs somewhere else.
It seems like if I did get accepted into the BMCC part-time program, I would be able to get my Associates Degree in Nursing and then hopefully get a job at a hospital that might help pay for me to get my BSN.
UGH!!! This going back to school is driving me CRAZY!!!!!!!!!
