Best Route to RN

  1. Currently, im an LPN, which do you think is better.... to do the LPN articulation program at a community college or proceed in an ADN program or do 2 years someplace or go to a nursing school or go for the BSN. I would prefer the pace be slow and not accelerated and eventually i would need to go for my BSN just not sure if it is the best first route to RN. How long would it take part time if i did choose the BSN route???? Do you need to take a test to get in the BSN program?

    I decided to do the LPN to ADN first because it will allow me to work as an RN while I'm getting my BSN and also because most BSN programs will give you some credit for your ADN but nothing for having the LPN. Can't say I know of any nursing programs that aren't fast paced though. Good luck, Jules

    I'm doing the ISU LPN-BSN program simply because I have almost all my pre-reqs already and it wouldn't save me any time to do ADN first.
