    Yes, but you are going to have to pretty much start from scratch and do four year program (or close to it) or get all of your prerequisites done and then do a two to three year program.

    Every school is a little bit different and you'll have to do the research to see what you need to do to get admitted to each program.

    Sure you can. It's just going to take you a bit longer because nursing programs require science pre-requisites that you probably haven't taken already, as liberal arts isn't science heavy. Most nursing programs require Anatomy+Physiology, Chemistry, Microbiology, and also a statistics course. Research what courses the program(s) want you to take, this can often be found on the school's website.

    Sure. To be admitted into a BSN program, you simply have to meet the requirements for the pre-requisite classes and GPA. It is possible that you'd need to take some additional science classes to meet those requirements.

    Step 1 is finding a BSN program you can afford to attend.

    Step 2 is reading through the entrance requirements

    Step 3 is probably talking to someone in the nursing program and transfer office

    Step 4 is applying as a transfer student

    Yes. If you don't have adequate credits you might have to take additional course work. In fact, even if you do have adequate credits, expect the school to screw you over and make you take additional classes anyway, because that's how they get paid.

    Yes. You can. But it's most likely going to take you longer. There are a lot of required courses that you may not have taken with your AA degree. Anatomy and Physiology is one common example.
