My local community college also offers classes from other colleges in the state (like 2 or 3 of them), for certain programs (business, accounting, nursing, counseling, etc.). BUT the ONLY way that one can get a BSN through ANY of the colleges anywhere near me is by becoming an RN FIRST (which takes 2 full years, including summer classes) and THEN transferring to ONE of those colleges for an RN to BSN (which is ANOTHER 2 years, and this isn't including general studies classes!).
The nearest college that offers a BSN WITHOUT being an RN first is over 2 hours away and you can't do that online, so I would have to move. I am so irked right now it isn't funny. When I signed up for classes, I was told that I could get my BSN without leaving this area, and without becoming an RN, but apparently not.
Now IDK what I'm going to do because I really don't want to have to move 2 hours away and leave DH and DD until I finish my degree (DH has a steady job that we can't afford to have him leave).

A BSN is a bachelors (of science) degree in Nursing... it's a 4 year program no matter where you go. A bachelors degree is 4 years no matter what it's in. I've never heard of a school that lets you split it up like that... most people I know have gone to a 4 yr college and graduated with a bachelors degree in Nursing (BSN) which make them eligible to sit for the state boards to become and RN - AKA an RN with a BSN ;o) Nursing is a very hands on program filled with lots of clinical assignments. You may ba able to do your clinicals close to home though. Good luck!!

"What I did NOT expect was that I would have to become an RN before I could even consider a BSN."
That's b/c you are not starting in the BSN program.... if you applied directly in to the BSN program as an undergrad you'd get them both simultaneously... does that make sense?
