I know there has been a couple of threads concerning this subject but what concerns me is not about the pros and cons of this program. I am barely a graduating CNA and plan to go to an RN program, but I always dreaded the long waitlist program. Then a friend of mine told me about the LVN-RN "30 unit challenge" program. He told me all the pros and cons about it. What I want to know is this. After you've completed your 30 unit program, I was told you're only certified without a degree and could only work in California. So my question is this : are you able to continue on to a BSN degree after you've completed the 30 unit challenge?? So after you've become an RN with no degree, you can still continue on to become a BSN?? No?
