I am in my last semester of a state school ADN program. I graduate in August and am looking for a RN-BSN program to get started right away. I know most of the programs require passing the NCLEX first but I want to find the right school for me so I can start any General ED or prereqs required.
I will have about 84 credit hours when I finish in August and most BSN require 120-125 credit hours. The problem is, some of these BSN programs want me to get all these general education courses like history, arts, and all this stuff that I feel is totally irrelavant to a BSN. I dont mind doing a class or two, like statistics or what not, but I dont want to take 20-30 credit hours of BS classes and then only 30 credits of nursing applied classes.
Are there programs that give you 50+ credits for the ADN, maybe some for being a nurse, and then you have to earn 30-60 credits or actual nursing classes to earn a BSN. I also want it regionally accredited so I can get a MSN and the credits will transfer and I dont have to start this mess all over again. The program needs to be 100% online because I might be moving to find a job. I dont mind clinicals though with mentors or what not.
Price is not really an issue, I just want a good program. Thanks for any suggestions!
