    Just curious what BSN program are you looking at? I'm about to finish school in a few months and that's my plan. There is a bridge program here in Oklahoma that goes from LPN to BSN with the requirement of one year working as an LPN to apply (along with prereqs of course). That is the one I'm planning on.

    I'm going to WGU in Texas. I know a few universities in OK offer LVN-BSN I think? are yalls community colleges packed? You could always apply to LPN-ADN

    Hello! I'm in Central Tx and would like to know if you have any advice on what's the best route to go as far as schooling for LVN or just straight for RN? My goal is BSN of course just not at the moment due to $$. I don't know which school I should go with at all. I'm getting calls from tons but I guess I'm getting more nervous than anything. I don't want to spend tons of money on the wrong programs. Thanks for any help u can send me.

    Since you live in Texas,you have an opportunity to go to WGUs Prelicensure Program. You will of course have to complete all of the prerequisites and take the TEAS test. Have you done those? Those steps are pretty much mandatory for all Nursing schools across the board.
    I do believe that if your end goal is to get a BSN then yes,you should bypass becoming a LVN. You will earn more as an RN and have way better opportunities available to you.
