It was quick for me but a couple of things have changed since 2010. It will be only as fast as your determination/motivation to succeed. Total time from enrollment to RN for me was 10 months. But everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, (including the stars), was lined up at the right time and place. The exams were cheaper, the CPNE was cheaper, expensive still, but cheaper and my brother paid for that because I'm his little sister, (even though Ms. Nightingale and i went to LPN school together), the FCCA was an open-book, at-home paper exam, there was no Math requirement, and EC offered a packaged program to finance it all at the time, and I studied on two specific occasions: DAY & NIGHT. And, every time anybody looked for me, I was on my knees! Had it not been for EACH AND EVERY ONE of these details, I would still be in college.
