Currently an LVN deciding between going to an LVN to ADN program in a community college OR going to a Generic Entry BSN program in National University Los Angeles.
I have a toddler and currently working nights as LVN. I want to become an RN hopefully before my toddler goes to grade school. I'm deciding between LA Harbor College (ADN) or National University LA (BSN). I have taken my sciences for more than 7 years. Most community college I have researched have recency policy of either 6 or 7yrs. Only LA Harbor College doesn't. National University LA doesn't have recency too.
IF I go to LAHC route, I just need to take lifespan psychology, teas test prior application and 4 nursing classes prior program. (I have scheduled counceling this comming week) The LVN to ADN is a 1 yr (12 months) program BUT there is no guarantee how long it takes before I get in. It depends on spot availability.
IF I go to NU LA Generic Entry route, I need to take 3 classes, teas test and essay before application. Application starts on April for the Oct 2018 program. It is a 26months program. I picked NU because its cheaper, its BSN program, and it has a higher passing rate compared to other private schools
around me. BUUUT it will cost we about 50K.
Does anyone know any other schools that I could check? Any thoughts this?
Or just retake my sciences??
