My name is Sara and I am changing my career path to becoming an RN. Eventually for Aesthetics : ) I literally have had no idea where to start in regards to becoming a nurse and the steps I will need to take with my education. I have some credits at University of Phoenix. I spoke with a counselor over there and they said I will need to go to a Community College for pre-req then get on the waitlist for my ADN. Do you guys do both pre-reqs and the ADN program? At what point do I do clinicals and approx how long does that go for? I do plan on getting my BSN eventually. I am really excited and would like to get started within the next 3 months. Can someone please give me a call or shoot an email? Thanks so much!
