Response . You would have to find a nursing program that you like and that suits your needs in the first place. I recommend this website: . Then, you need to to speak with a counselor of admissions at the university/ college /trade school to be accepted. You will then need to meet with a JOINT COORDINATOR,, as that is probably not going to need to attend to the two years required to obtain a license as a RN. It is likely that you already have met all, if not most, of the general education requirements, and may already have taken some of the science classes is required. They will look at your official transcripts, and then asses what the transfer credit and what not. Don't be surprised if a large amount of your credit do not count, depending on what BS degree you have. An example would be a bachelor's degree in business administration. I'd bet that the vast majority of the classes in that degree would not be transferable toward a nursing degree. It really depends on the school and their requirements. . You have to remember that nursing is very specialized, and there are many classes in the degree program that are specifically "nursing" classes that have not always had. Even if a Pre-Med undergraduate with a bachelor's degree in Biology was to get a RN, he would still be lacking probably of a year of nursing classes. But you'll never know until you sit down with the joint coordinator.
