    Hi LunahRN, do you know if there are other alternatives to paying for EC lpn-rn program? I am having a difficult time continuing the program due to inavailabilty of $$$$. Does college network or rue education assist in paying the fees? If they do, I don't mind going through them. Am trying to finish this program by December , please help, thanks.

    I would caution you about involving any third-party companies like College Network or Rue -- they will just add money to the bottom line. You're better off paying as you go, as you can. EC has a payment plan -- have you looked at that? Your other option is a personal bank loan -- some students have done that as well.

    Thanks LunahRN for your response. The problem am having is finding someone to cosign when it comes to bank loans. Also, I appreciate the tip on the payment plan thing. I would definitely look into it. Also, do you by any chance know about any other colleges that offer Lpn to RN besides EC and ISU? I found out about Pratt college in kansas but I would have to wait till December to start.

    Sorry, I don't really know of any others. How far along in EC's program are you?

    Just took health and safety and failed it. but I don't feel too bad about it though, at least, I should be able to get it right next time.

    Excelsior is a great way for experienced LPN/LVN's to get their RN. Bottom line you have to know what a new graduate RN knows. Whether you learn it through work and/or through studying, it matters not, you know it, you pass it.

    Beware you must be a self motivated person or you'll be wasting your money. As for their RN-BSN, I personally wouldn't touch it.
