Ok guys, it has taken me a few weeks to post this, but here goes. I am an LPN x 10yrs. I have had a desire to go back to school for my RN x 10 yrs. I have 3 children in college, 1 married and a 13 yr. old at home. I thought now would be a good time to go back. So finally our community college offered an 18 month LPN - Rn bridge program. You can not have to take any math,reading etc. etc. only a chemistry class. This is totally federally funded at no cost to the student. All you have to do is pass this COMPASS placement test. So I had a week to study.
Well I bought ACT books, studied online whatever it took. I even took the NCLEX-RN test for the heck of it 180 question. I only missed 20.
without any (formal) RN studying.
So I was brave enoguh to go take this test, and aced it all but the math! Whats wrong here? Come to find out they had to cancel this new program 'cause they couldnt fined enough qualified nurses. They had to have 20 for the class. And out of 150 of us they couldnt do that. I still have the desire to go to school. But I am lost as to where to go from here.
