    A friend just graduate this February. She started in 2004. She was held back nearly a year due to a shortage of places for the final clincal placement.

    She worked full time as an LPN and has no children (less distractions)

    Hi Dana,

    I'm also taking the post LPN to RN at Athabasca. I've been in it since May, it takes a lot of dedication. I was wondering since I don't know anyone else whose taking the program if somehow we could stay in touch, for study questions sake. What courses are you currently taking?

    I'm seriously thinking about doing LPN to RN at Athabasca.

    If all of my previously earned university credits transfer I'll only have to do the nursing classes.

    Any idea how long the nursing classes take to complete? I'd like to finish up in 2 years or less.

    Any idea where in Calgary the clinical portions are held?

    Hi All,

    I am in B.C and looking at the program as well Nice to know a pod of us are all going through AU!
    I would love to keep in touch; I have not yet applied due to a general hesitancy I am having around the program.
    The more info I have the more informed decision I can make.

    Thanks in advance,

    The course length depends on your initiative and willpower to get theough.. Depending on the course load that u decide to undertake i am sure i can be done in a couple of yrs.. The hold up would be the availability for clinicals..

    So true Trish. My friend's graduation was delayed nearly a year due to lack of spots. She was willing to travel anywhere in the province but it came down to number of students v. number of preceptors.
