Hi I'm new to allnurses.com and I think this is a great forum for all nurses and aspiring nurses on all levels. Which is why I need some input from my wonderful colleagues out there. I have been an LPN for about a year, got my experience working the floor in a local nursing home and loved it. When it came time to search for a LPN-RN Bridge program I found it more frustrating to look for this kind of program than looking for any other kind of nursing program. Before I became an LPN I finished the majority of my pre-reques at a community college with the exception of microbiology. Is there any community colleges out there in the suburbs or city colleges of Chicago that do not recognize boundary lines besides Oakton Community College? My local community college (College of DuPage) does not offer a bridge program yet unfortunately. I'm kinda feeling hopeless and wonder if I could ever get into a ADN program. I know there are a lot of LPN's in Illinois that have been in this situation. I would really appreciate any feedback about the possible options I have. Thanks.
