A little venting and a little advice needed....
I just moved to Peru, IL 8 months ago and am so frustrated with the State of Illinois b/c no college offers a TRUE lpn to rn bridge program. They all just use you to fill in their spots from the students who failed out or dropped out from the RN programs. Everyone keeps screaming for more nurses, but we can't get into the programs!
Anyone know the wait times on these programs, esp JJC? Any other programs that anyone would recommend, maybe in Peoria, Bloomington, etc? I don't want to do a BSN program either b/c I already have a BS and I really want to get my Associates and then apply for Rush's Online Master's Program! It's the least expensive way for me and I am determined to do it.
If I can get into the JJC program is there anyone from Morris that is in the program who I could bum a ride off of? My husband is going to kill me if I end up having to drive 100 miles round trip!
