    I am completing an unaccredited ADN which will allow me to sit for the NCLEX for RN licensure in Florida.

    Is anyone aware of a good RN to BSN online option where an unaccredited ADN is not problematic?

    Are you sure that it's completely unaccredited and not accredited by, say, Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools?

    Hi, yes, the school is not accredited but is approved in Florida. I chose the program as a cost effective LPN to RN option.

    This kind of thing begs for going beyond what some catalogue says and actually engaging school officials in a conversation. You'd be surprised what can be negotiated beyond what the school's catalogue, literature, website, and regulations state.

    You’re right…

    I had a good conversation with a rep from the University of Texas at Arlington. Good program and fulfills what I need.

    For other ADN’s who might stumble here:

    – Earn your BSN in as little 9-13 months, 35 upper division nursing courses for $8,995
    • An active, unencumbered RN license from the United States
    • 2.25 Grade Point Average (GPA) in all required general courses completed
    RN/MSN (Administration or Education) – Earn your BSN and MSN for only $19,500

    Various accredited universities provide credit based on the passing of the NCLEX-RN and not the transfer of credit from unaccredited nursing schools. Thomas Edison State University will transcript a number of courses for a fee: Thomas Edison State University - The Office of Professional Learning Reviews (tesu.edu)

    These courses are then used to satisfy some requirements for obtaining an accredited BSN. The key is to pass the NCLEX-RN and obtain a license as a Registered Nurse in your State.
