You can start taking your prerequisite courses, which usually takes 2 years. Most of the courses you can take online, ie, English, art, math, communication, political science, etc. I would suggest you receive an associate in arts or science at a community college or you can go to a university of your choice and complete the first two years and apply to their nursing program for the next two years. But you have to take 2 Chemistry, 2 Anatomy and 1 microbiology in a class room settings due to the lab class required for the course. You can take those over summer or take those in 8 weeks, if the college you choose, offers it during those times. Then when you're finish with those course apply to a BSN nursing program, which is completed in 2 years. I did it this way and I'm currently in an ADN program. I chose this route because it's cheaper. It is possible, but only with hard work and dedication. Good luck with your future endeavors.
