If you completed prereqs at a Community College, what was your experience like? Do you think it was beneficial rather than completing them at a University?
I ask because I am thinking about attending a Community College. I was going to attend a University however, there is a $600 per credit hour price differential. I can take the required 3 credit hour course for $219 at a Community College, the same course is well over $800 at the university I am interested in.
What are your thoughts?

I agree with he above poster. I am experiencing the same. Everything tied to the ADN degree are completely transferable to the BSN-bridge I am looking to apply.
The only courses I will need to take at a 4-year University are Sociology (I already have it from a previous degree), a Health Ethics course, Statistics (I already have it from a previous degree), and Pathophysiology. The Patho and and Health Ethics I plan to take from the University with the Bridge Program. I am enrolled in one this Semester and will enroll and complete the other one by the end of next Summer.
You are right, they are coslty... I will end up paying about $700 for each course not including the books! However, since I am knocking them out one at a time, I am able to pay cash for them just like I pay cash for the others. If all goes well, I will be able to complete an application for transfer and apply to the bridge program and get accepted on a contingency basis before I finish my ADN.
Talk to a counselor to make sure your courses will transfer and the requirements of your school of choice because schools vary. Besides, counselors are your best source of information.
