So you plan to get your ADN at LAVC and then transfer to a CSU and do an RN-BSN program? If that is the case you will need those non-nursing courses to fulfill your GE requirements as part of your BSN program. Best bet is to get them done at the CC level and then they are out of the way. To get a job in LA you really need that BSN anyways, so you might as well tackle that now while you have a roof over your head and parents who are willing to help you. I am in the LA area also and the market is intense for new grad nurses, especially without the BSN level education. My advice-stay in the courses.
