    I don't have any suggestions for schools in your area... but good for you !!! I went from a CNA in HS to the BSN program at a school in Ohio...if I had it to do all over again...well I would have gone to a tech school and done it that way. I feel I would have had better training and probably have learned a whole lot more about actual patient care than I did in the BSN program. I have a great friend who is in a tech school here in ND, and she has been learning and doing things that I only got to watch a video on!!!! I never got to start an IV in 5 years of school, so my suggestion to you, is look into the tech schools in your area. Good luck and God bless you in your continuing studies as a NURSE!!! It is a tought road, but you can do it!!!

    I will be graduating as an LPN on May 5th. I think your best bet would be to contact your state board of nursing or education and find ACCREDITED LPN programs. Make sure whichever school you choose has credits that will transfer into an ASN or BSN program---if you later decide to go on. I agree with one of the other post-ers that you get the absolutel BEST hands-on care when you go through the LPN class first. I am from Indiana and we have to share clinical sites with students from Purdue and Indiana University. some of them are graduating from a 4-year program and haven't had nearly the hands-on experience we have had. When I graduate, I will have completed over 600 clinical hours
    Best of luck to you!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :hatparty:

    Hi there!! I attend a tech school in Indiana and I agree w/the others....get the tech stuff done first. You will be SOOOOOO much more prepared when /if you go on to get yor BSN. The good Lord willing, I will graduate in August of this year!!
