I can see that you are in AZ, so you have some great options!! I am also in AZ, so I understand what you are going through. In my opinion, its all about timing and money. Yes, EVIT is expensive, but I have heard they have a great program and there is no wait. CC is cheap in comparison, but the wait is ridiculous!! If you can afford the EVIT route, I would say go for it. In Az, once you get your LPN, you can easily advance to the CC LPN to RN program for block 3 and 4 and complete your RN. If you are set on getting your BSN, all of the Maricopa CC's offer a CEP option so you can obtain your ASN from them and your BSN from a cooperating school; many to choose from. I am actually looking in to EVIT because I could start next semester rather than waiting the 2-3 years on the waitlist.
