When declaring your freshman/undergrad major, does "RN to BSN" require you to already have a license?

For some colleges I'm applying to, their nursing majors read "RN to BSN" and I don't want to declare that option if it requires you to have a license (which I don't have) and be a registered nurse (which I am not). What can I do if the college only has that option for their nursing major and I...

What does a Hospital Nurse’s life look like outside of work? How much free time do they have? Do the cons of being a nurse take a huge toll on your life outside the hospital?

I am a Senior in high school and will soon be moving on to become a Registered Nurse, and hopefully even specializing further. I found a lot online about a day in the life of a nurse and what that is like, but i was wondering what affect that took on someone's life and how they live outside of...

I'm graduating from college in a few months with a 2.6 GPA in Bachelor of Arts in Biology. I've decided to try to go to Nursing School at this point. What should I do to increase my chances of getting in? Is it likely that I would be accepted?

When I graduated from high school I set my goal to go into dentistry. Throughout my undergraduate years I've struggled with keeping my grades up. The main reason why is because after seeing how much I struggled with just passing my first semester of college, I immediately started doubting that...
