Hello Everyone, I could use some help on understanding this ladder system that a certain community college uses. Ok, one of the prereq's for being able to start the associates degree in nursing there is takeing the lpn course. Now, the lpn program looks like two years to finish, prereq's the first year, then the actual core classes (nursing) if you are elected to go into it. So, let's say someone finishes their lpn program, two years have passed, now they are eligible to start takeing the prereq's for the associates in nursing there. Take those prereq's for that program, then if elected, you can continue with the nursing core classes for the associates. I am seeing close to 4 years here. Which, normally in 4 years you could get a bachelors. Am i not seeing the right picture here? Please help me understand the ladder program.

I know a University for 4 years or more...could end up being very expensive. They say that the new 4 year degree is actually almost 5.
