LPN to RN Fast track, challenge, testing in colleges anywhere?

  1. I have been trying to find a college in any state that has a fast track program for lpn/lvn's where you can test in without all of the prerequisites.

    In 1988 my college did not give us credits for our courses, which I was not aware of until the end!

    I have been a lpn for approx. 20 years. I don't have the luxury of time to go the slow route.

    It seems that Arizona has some colleges that you can test in. My grade point average (GPA) was 3.72 and I was on the Presidents Honor Roll.

    Anyone know of anything out there, anywhere? I will move if I have to.

    Murray State College offers a bridge program where LPNs are eligible to challenge certain courses. It is located in Oklahoma.

    I attend a private bridge program in Oklahoma City that is 14 months long and includes all prerequisites. In addition, they will credit you with any prerequisite classes you may have completed.

    Commuter; How hard is it to get grants, scholarships, assistance for this? Also, it looks as though I can possibly test out and will only have 1-2 semesters. Have you heard anything about this? thanks
