    i am wondering if you can pick a clinical site where u already work??
    ISU has specific requirements for clinicals and the agency must agree to allowing an ISU student to take their clinical at the site. Theoretically, if everything went right, you could do some clinicals at your facility--but there are some clinicals that require an outside placement. Get the requirements for the clinicals and talk to your facility.

    Imagineme2day, I should have said all of my transcripts credits were accepted and I took A&P 1&2 over 10 years. As ladyinscrubs said get a transcript evaluation and you will know for sure. I haven't had any problems with transcript, exams, or anyone at ISU. My experience thus far has been positive.

    Hey guys, I'm in New Jersey and I'm looking to do this online program. I was previously in a BSN program, but things didn't work out there, and I just finished my lpn program. I have 113 total credits, 86 credits without the nursing courses, but no associates degree. So in my case, how long would it take me to complete, and I think in here, we an have more than 1 clinical. Please respond ASAP thanks!!!

    It all just depends on how many credits are transferable. Go to and look at the nursing curriculum for prereqs. You should have enough credits and required credits if you were already in a BSN program. 4 challenge exams and teas is phase 2 and the phase 3 should be 5-6 semesters. This is if you aren't in Cali. which you said you are in NJ.

    Hi Everyone....I enrolled with the College Network/ISU for the LPN to BSN program this past week....I am very pleased with my decision, I had been thinking about the U of Phoenix program and found that this will better suit my needs....I am curious, how long has it taken to complete the pre-req's through TCN?....I am planning on spending 2h per day on my studies, any idea how quickly this can be accomplished?.....would love to network with some fellow students who have just started the program as well....please contact if you are interested in forming a study partnership!....

    Good luck to you. I'm working on my prereqs at TCN and will be enrolling at ISU as soon as those are done. Just have 6 more to finish up!

    I just took my Developmental Psych test earlier this month. If that's the one you're doing there were a lot of questions about the theorists so I'd make sure to know those.
