My backround; I finished all of my nursing prereqs at a community college but haven't had any luck on getting into nursing programs. within 3 years i've completed prereques and gained my CNA and applied to lvn and rn programs with no luck yet. I've been stuck on the waiting list in cali. I came across this school that will allow me to finish in four semesters with my ADN.
I'm thinking about attending a small private for-profit college for the ADN program. This college is regionally accredited and their ADN program is ACEN accredited. They also offer a RN-BSN route that's CCNE accredited. The school is also approved by the state board of nursing.
Before making the final move, I'd want to be sure that my nursing credits will transfer over when I apply to public BSN programs or MSN programs at universities. How will i know for sure that my RN degree will be accepted when applying to public RN-BSN programs elsewhere?
I'm nervous because their program recently received accreditation in 2016, will this effect my applications to universities? I've also heard a lot of bad comments when looking into for-profit and private schools.
Also, when applying to RN-BSN programs, do my science prereqs from my cc have to be within the 5 yr mark as some schools require a time frame?
