Here is my situation....I have been an LPN for almost a year and a half. My first job was at a nursing home, and I now work in pain management in a clinic. I started Excelsior's ADN program last year, and breezed through most of the program. I only had the three LS exams to take, along with the FCCA and CPNE. I decided to switch my major to a Bachelors in Health Science with Excelsior for two reasons: One, because I already have an Associates in another field (Early Childhood Education), and I really want my Bachelors degree-so I felt like I was wasting my time working on ANOTHER Associates degree. Two, because I didn't feel like I was learning anything in the ADN program. I would barely study for the tests and pass. If and when I do become an RN, I want to be the best I can be.
I guess what I am looking for is some insight from others who have completed the program, or those who felt like they breezed through the program as well. I am having second thoughts on whether to switch back into the ADN at Excelsior. If I could take the LPN to BSN at ISU I would, but my state doesn't accept it. Any ideas?
