I haven't heard of any new laws that have passed stating cancellation of the LVN to RN bridge program. However, many programs are being cut. Also, a lot of schools, for some, reason prefer to teach new RN's staight from the begining. I am in an LVN-RN Bridge program as we speak. I got in pretty quickly but that's due to the hospital I work for has a grant with the school. Many of my friends have had to wait quite awhile to get in. Also, more requirements are being established to even apply to the program. Yes, ALL of your prerequisutes must be completed prior to applying. You also have to take what's called a TEAS exam. Your science classes must be withing 7 years of applying otherwise, you need to retake the science classes. Most schools, not all, require Chem, A&P, Micro, Sociology 101, LIfe Span Development, certain math classes etc to apply. It's best to truck through all of your gen ed then apply, taking science last so it doesn't expire while you wait.
I have mixed emotions on my career path. Part of me wishes I just went for my RN vs LVN to RN. But then again, I think I will be a much stronger RN because of the experience! Don't quit, you've put too much time and effort in to it.
There are some schools that might be easier to get in to such as Antelope Valley College. Be careful with any online courses that promise LVN to BSN such as The COllege Network. Beware of private schools. You must make sure if you choose that route that the classes you are taking are "regionally accredited" not nationally accredited. Only regionally accredited classes will transfer to state schools and CC's. The nationally accredited schools will only intratransfer so therefore, you'll only be able to go to places like University of Phoenix or National University (National is actually both regional and national).
Good luck. Be sure to check the BRN website to see which schools are accredited and are in good standing.
