I have been researching non-stop, I feel like my head is going to explode! I would like to just become an Lpn in the beggining and go back and finish with Bsn, why is it so difficult with this transferring of credits? I live in Chicago so unfortunately I can't get into any of the good programs out in the burbs eg.. Oakton, Triton. I am so frustrated! I just wanted to start a new career and be able to move up the ladder, unfortunately most schools I call say they will not accept most of my credits, including my Lpn training. All of the Chicago public colleges are ghetto, I don't feel I get a fair chance here. What can I do to get into a better school??
