Here are two public universities that you may consider for your second degree BSN education - 

Florida State University

The College of Nursing in FSU offers the Florida State Board of Nursing fully approved Accelerated BSN curriculum. It is also accredited by the CCNE or Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education. You can be admitted into this program provided that you are highly motivated and have already earned a non-nursing Bachelor's degree. The university asks that you study full-time for a period of 12 months.

Applicants need to forward their application from December 1 through February 1, this is if they want to be admitted to the Fall semester. The university decides who gets admitted six weeks prior to the deadline.

The Accelerated BSN program incorporates traditional BSN coursework with the help of expert faculty and high-tech resources. As a graduate of this program, you become prepared to take on a registered nurse's role just as long as you pass the licensure exam.

University of North Florida

This Florida State Board of Nursing approved and CCNE/NLNAC accredited program has a pass rate of 86.16%. To become eligible, you need to hold at least a baccalaureate degree by the time of your enrollment to the program.

Financial aid is available in the form of student loans and a few scholarships. Students are encouraged to get in touch with the UNF One-Stop-Center.

While the university does not rule against students who are working while studying, it is unlikely that you are going to be able to do this when you take the accelerated BSN. Even if you opt for part-time study, it is still going to be difficult for you to balance these two things unless your employer offers a flexible work schedule.
