are you kidding? i have never heard of a school not giving an entrance exam. i live in college station, texas and the college i currently attend is blinn college.
and i am interested in the rn program but decided to take the lvn exam just to see where i would place and to get a taste of what the rn exam would be like. i won't know how i did until june though. if i were to get in, which i doubt because honestly i started to give up on the end of the science portion, i will go through the lvn program. they have a transitional course where a lvn can become a rn within one year of study, that is after you work as a lvn for one year. which i think would be okay because i could contine taking a couple of courses a semester (working towards the bechelor's) while working as a lvn. what do you guys think? does this sound like a good plan or something i need to reconsider? thanks!!!!
ok i'm gonna try to post one more time, first i was bumped off line, next a transformer popped somewhere close to me, shut me down & then the keyboard wouldn't work. lol so back to your question for the third time.
here is a link for a book on pre-entrance exams.....
the other suggestion i had was to look into schools
(usually adn programs) that offer an lvn/lpn exit class between the first & second year of the rn program. this way you are still going on for your rn but can take the class & work as an lvn while finishing up the rn, then you can work as an rn while finishing up your bachelor's degree.
this is a link listing rn and advance practice programs....
good luck in your quest to become a
i know i had a couple other ideas but have now forgotten them.
