How beneficial would it be for one to become an LVN first, and then head on to Excelsior program. Has anyone heard of this? All the classes are completely online, and then you take your clinicals at a local participating hospital. BUT, they only accept LVN/LPNS into their associate RN program. Should I just go this route? I work in dialysis currently as a tech, so a move up to LVN, even though temporarily, would certainly mean a pay raise. ANd my boss is more than unerstanding when it comes to school.

That definately is an option. Take a look at our distance learning forum here. There are lots of EC students there. http://allnurses.com/forums/f125/
Note that EC is not accepted in all states.
Good luck in whatever you do.
