Have anyone transition to a adn from a bsn? I was wondering how many credits actually transferred and what school in Texas did you transition to and from?

Do you mean from an ADN to a BSN? the ADN is an associates and the BSN is a bachelors, which is the level above the associates in terms of education.

there are tons of posts and information on this board about the RN-BSN programs, try a thread search

You can't transfer from BSN to ADN. To answer your question, you would essentially have to complete the other half of the requirements for a bachelors. Consider an ADN to BSN matriculates into Junior year at most colleges. So, you'd have to complete the remainder of the Junior and senior requirements for a bachelors.

Best explanation I could provide.

That's more than likely not going to happen. But, you may want to call them yourself.

Normally ADN courses are designed with mini courses imbedded into them and are much more rigorous than BSN courses because the students only have a limited amount of time to obtain the material & the nursing instructors have a limited amount of time to teach the material.

This statement doesn't reflect the mission of that college. But, I will err on the side that you will have to start the program from the beginning.

Can you reapply to your BSN program to retake the course you failed?

I can but since it was a accelerated program I will have to relocate to Dallas to do the in seat program. I contacted Lee college and they will however allow me to come at the level of were I have to complete 22 weeks which is three semesters. If room permits. I dont understand what they mean by exits and having limited attempts.

Limited attempts to pass the course. I would assume "exits" is the politically correct term for those who did not pass the course.

"Limited attempts" could also mean students of their program who have not been successful in the course and have first dibs on any open seats in that semester. I am not certain on "Lee Colleges" reentrance or entrance exams. It is best to direct these questions to the advisor of that college's nursing program.

Thanks for the attempt. Do you know what if any difference there is in the curriculum?

I am not an ADN graduate, but I believe the assessments, pharmacology, and management components are the only missing parts of the program. It's been so long since I've been in Nursing school, they may have added these topics into the program.

I know Management & Assessments aren't covered in great detail.
