Anyone here an LPN who applied to the 2yr RN program without bridging?

    Hey just curious if anyone here is an LPN, but decided to go through with another 2 years of RN school without bridging for one year. What was your reason for doing so? And are you glad you went this direction? And also, did it make school that much easier for you?

    Why would you want to do that?

    Not that I want to.. But I will not be able to get my lvn license till after March, and most of the schools deadline to apply for the RN , or LVN - RN bridge is due by March.. So I would have to apply to the general program.

    Have you thought about trying Excelsior College? That's where I'm going

    I dont think Excelsior is valid in California, and I would just prefer a brick and mortar school because I'm not too fond of taking online courses, but thanks for the suggestion

    Oh okay, in that case I would just wait it out if that's what you want to do Also, another suggestion is taking all your pre-reqs at a local community college to get them over with before you get into nursing school (or while you're waiting)
    Good luck with whatever you decide!

    Are you a LPN? I love it! I took all of my pre-reqs at a local community college, and some classes at a hospital school of nursing program I attended. I only had to take the required nursing courses through Excelsior. I started in Sept. '09 and finished everything this past December, except the CPNE, which I take in March

    Hey Nicolina, I have already finished my pre reqs for the ADN schools. But I do 1 or 2 pre reqs left to apply to bachelors programs when that time comes. I will register for those now, and by the way, thanks for the help. =) Appreciate it!

    Hi,

    I'm a LPN going on 3 years now and I'm currently in the RN program at Cincy State, finished my pre reqs in 3 quarters and I found out I was on the Feb 2011 list back in Sept. I also completed all the non nursing courses that are required. I graduate next June 2012 and I think that it was a great move on my part, since my husband is a nurse as well and works full time so I was able to get my pre reqs out the way and fast. I plan on going to either UC or Xavier for their ASN to MSN program. UC currently has theirs on hold due to low activity but hopefully by the time I finish it will be up and running. So that was my reason because I was able to in our situation and I'm glad that I did and now I have more experience when going to school again. And I'm not sure if it will be any easier once I do start (next week). Every one that I know that have went through LPN to RN all say that it is still hard, even the instructors.
