    Hi everyone!

    I have one silly question that I want to ask...I live in California and want to work as a Registered Nurse in California...I know that I will have to take the NCLEX exam here in California after I finished with my BSN program...or before working. So..let say if I want to go to an out-of-state school, University of Maryland for instance, will they prepare me to take the NCLEX exam there...or I have to go back to my state and take. Do all states require the NCLEX exam or just only in California. Thanks!

    The NCLEX is a national exam, so all states have to take it.

    I have been searching for schools that run prereq's concurrently and i found several that don't have waiting list also, but since they are career colleges they are$$$$. Concord career college in Aurzo, CO has a 14-16 month lpn-rn 8-4 class. Sanford brown college in St. Peters, MO has a 12 month 4:30-8:30 class. Prima in Mesa, Az has a 96 week class day time. North and south seattle community colleges have some sort of one year lpn-rn class.

    Also I have found some either distance learning and or online schools also. Pratt community college in Pratt, KS has a online lpn-rn class thats completely online. You visit the school approx. 7 times during your course of study. You do clinicals with them at facilities for 6 weeks at three ten hour days each session. Other than that you don't sit in a class. And guess what else. It is a very cheap school under 6,000. The catch is you need to have a KS state LPN license.

    Chamberlain college of nusing also offers an online lpn-rn. Catch at the end of each seesion where you are to complete clinicals in your own state. You must obtain your clinical sit on your own. I was given info as to contact the education dept. at the hosp. of choice and ask if they will allow you to practice under the direction of their RN. Way around that is if you live in Missouri the school will help you set up clinicals. The rest of ypur classes are done online. If you live out of the area you must travel to St. Louis , MO to validate your clinical performance every so often. Catch is that 7 states don't reconize this school. Cost is under 20,000 a year.


    Exclesior college, offers the entire nursing program online or through distance learning. You earn credits through examination. Catch is that you don't attend any clinicals, the therory is that if you are already in the healthcare feild actively you are gainig your clinicals through everyday learning on the job. Don't fear because there are plenty of hospitals that will hire you with RN pay as a intern providing you with clinical experience at their expenince, especially the magnet hospitals. There are publishing companys out there that have what they call tutorials to help you pass exclesior exams. I don't personnally know about them, but some have found them helpful and others say go straight through Exclesior.

    Another route to get into nuring is to go through a diploma program at a hospital school. it takes two-three years, but some have lpn-to rn programs which take less time. I found alot in New Jersey and New york, there are some in other state. Go to any search engine and type in nursing schools and I beleive you can go to allschools.com or try discvoernursing.com.

    I hope I was of some help to someone else joining me in this wonderful feild of nusing.

    Ameritech College Nursing School in Utah doesn't have a waiting list. They also offer all your prereq's to be taken concurrently with nursing courses, and you finish in 19 months. If you have all prereq's done you finish in 16 months. It is a little pricier...but time is money right? I can't afford to wait 2-3 years to begin nursing school!

    My school (Cy Fair College) in Houston does not have a waiting list. You just have to reapply every semester. I think that is how most of the nursing schools in Houston are.

    Though there is no waiting list, I think admittances are extremely competitive. Determining factor is weighted heavily on GPA. Here in Southern Alabama, every nursing school on average, accepts about 10-15 % of all applicants. I was told at University of Alabama that they normally receive about 500-600 applicants per semester, and only admits 50. I applied for their accelerated BSN program, of which only 12 are taken per semester.
    Yikes! That's the problem I'm running into. Thanks for the heads-up!

    My daughter goes to Thomas Jefferson University's Geisinger campus in Danville, PA. There are no prereq's. Then gen eds. are done concurrently w/ the nursing classes. I was unsure about this program, but so far, so good. She is learning a ton of stuff and skills. I can't believe it. It is very intense. I do not believe they have a waiting list. It is a two year ADN program and they are done in two years. www.tju.edu Good luck to everyone. I know a lady w/ a very good GPA who has been waiting a year and a half for admission to our local community college. It is frustrating. She is a wonderful tech and would be a great nurse.
    Your post is possibly out of date. Is there any additional info you can report?
