I was wondering if I can get some advice.. I just started a LPN program.. but before that I was taking prereq's because I wanted to go straight into a RN program. I didnt do the RN program because it was fulltime and I just had a baby.. So I decided to do the LPN parttime. :stone
Anyway Since I have completed all of these prereqs (I just need take Micro) whats the best way to get into a RN program. will it be eaiser for me since I have my prereqs done? I hate to waste all those credits and have them go down the drain.. HOw long does on have to work before going into to RN school from LPN school???

Congrats on the baby!
The RN program will be challenging, but if you have all of your prerequisites (except) for Micro out of the way, then it will definitley be a lot less stressful. You will be able to focus more of your study time directly on your RN course work. The RN program that I completed had a "bridge" component, where LPNs would come in during the second year of our two year program. Other schools may handle this differently, but this is the way my school did it. I'm pretty sure that you don't have to work as an LPN to get into RN school. Just keep at it and Good Luck!

I went to a 2 step program--we were required to license as an LPN to continue in the RN year---We had a bridge program for existing LPNs also that went for a short time over the summer and then they joined us during the RN year. Some of them had been an LPN for a year or more, one guy went to a program that was just an LPN school, did the bridge program right away and then joined us in our RN year. I don't think there is any limit!!!
Congrats on the baby-------and good luck in Micro!!!!!
