I will be applying this fall to hopefully get into LPN school for Fall '08. I'll be applying to 3-4 different programs, and I'll be getting certified this summer as a nursing assistant. Did you get into LPN school on your first try applying? The schools
I'm applying to are private, and although they are expensive, they don't have any pre-reqs- they just require that you write an essay on why you want to be an LPN, take a pre-entrance test, and have a HS diploma. I didn't do too well in HS, only had a 2.3 GPA because I slacked off and am regretting it now....I now have a 3.7 GPA in college, but I'm hoping the fact that I didn't do well in high school won't hurt me. I know that it's a little easier to get into an LPN program, rather than an RN school- but just wondering if you guys got in on your first try? :uhoh21:

Rue Education is a research and development firm that supplies focused learning materials for nursing and general education standardized exams, which can be used to earn credits toward an accredited nursing degree. Rue is not affiliated or endorsed by the National League for Nursing or Excelsior College.
I know that RueEd is not a nursing program, but they do help you to reach your goal of becoming a RN on your own time. This program makes it easier I think for a LPN to be able to work full time and to study in her spare time to prepare for Rue exams.
Most states accept RN's that have taken the exams through RueEd.
