This question may have been asked but I can't find it exactly. My current school says it may not accept me into their RN program. My entrance class requirements are not all met, but I can keep taking those classes so that's not my problem. The 4 classes I took in the summer time for Liberal Arts, once I found out I didn't need them for nursing I dropped them online and never looked back. What I didn't know is that summer courses couldn't be dropped online and I had to go in person. This was never the case but apparently this is something new. So my grade point average dropped and when I explained this in the counseling / admissions office they couldn't do anything so it is what it is. I can get that GPA up, and take the classes I need to meet the general entrance requirements. The woman also kept telling me that their program is so very hard to get into and not everyone is accepted. So to avoid from smacking her as she's calling me stupid in so many words....i'm trying to figure out how to overcome this obstacle.
This is a community college and if they aren't going to work with me then I need to find another school that will while I can work during the day.
So If I become an LPN first, how much longer to become an RN afterwards?
Can I go somewhere else to become an RN that I don't have to go 4 years?
Are hospital programs better then colleges?
Would you recommend going to RN school first?
Are online schools better like Phoenix, Indiana or Excelsior?
I really could use some help and advice as my goal seems blocked or harder to accomplish now. HELP
