Hi im trying to see what would be the best option. Im looking at the following schools:

ADN: BMCC or Montefiore SON. For both, i would need to retake A&P 1 and 2 plus chemistry then take their entrance exams.

LPN: VEEB. Its an accelerated LPN program. Starts every september, 8am-1pm mon to fri for 11 months. This will be a 2 hour commute for me going and coming but its my best option for LPN because I work 3pm-11pm. All you need is to pass their entrance exam and you're in. No pre reqs. A&P 1 and 2 are included in the program, so no transferring outside credits.

I was recently accepted to BMCC to retake my prereqs this Spring. My plan was to retake chem with A&P 1 in Spring, A&P 2 over the summer... Buuuttt I feel like this would be a waste if i end up getting into VEEB because they dont accept transfer credits? However you can transfer VEEB's A&P, etc. (Correct me if wrong) to Helene Fuld for LPN to RN.

Should i just stick to one option (LPN or ADN) or keep using one as a back up?

Current VEEB student here! They also have an articulation agreement with Nassau Community College. The entrance exam in my opinion was very simple and straight forward.
