I live in charlotte too, and like you, I already have a 4 year degree. I am going to Carolinas College of Health Sciences in Jan, and pretty much the only thing I have to take is the nursing courses and human a&p. I have also heard, though I can't say for sure, that if you have a bachelors degree (in anything), you only have to get an associates in nursing to qualify for graduate school at some places (instead of having to have a BSN). Because of this, from what I can tell, there is no reason to get a BSN because your BA/BS plus the ADN is pretty equivilent to a BSN. It also takes about 1-2 semesters longer to get an actual BSN than an ADN (which is the primary reason I chose a 2 year program instead of UNCC).
I have also done a lot of research on the schools around here. Most of the schools offer students with previous degrees considerable (sometimes half of the program) credit for their previous work.
The schools around here I can think of off the top of my head are Carolinas College of Health Sciences (@CMC), Cabarrus College of Health Sciences (at Northeast Medical Center in Concord), Presbyterian (associated w/ Queens now, so it costs $$$$$$), UNCC, Mercy School of Nursing, CPCC, Gaston College, and RCCC. I believe all of these offer the 2 year degree, with maybe the exception of UNCC.
This link : http://www.ncbon.com/LicStat-PassRates.asp
has a complete list of the schools, their program/degree offering, and their NCLEX passrate up to 2005. I used this as a good guide to how strong the programs were that I applied to.
As a side note, there also seems to be quite a bit of financial assistance available to students... for example, I pretty much dont qualify for anything according to the FAFSA, but received a scholarship
through my school. Presumably this was because of my previous education, though my grades in college were pretty average. My point is... even if you dont think you qualify, apply for scholarships
If you have more questions about the schools around here, feel free to pm/email me, I'd love to help you if I can!
