    I'll move this thread to the LPN-to-RN student forums where, hopefully, other members will be able to provide some feedback and answer your question. Good luck to you!

    Depends on how heavy a courseload you are willing to take on. I'm doing ISU and you can test out of your pre-reqs and 4 of your nursing course so it can be done pretty fast.

    http://www.indstate.edu/nurs/lpn-bs.html It's an online program in which you do the classroom part online and the clinicals locally with a preceptor.

    ISU = Indiana State University

    ISU offers an online LPN-to-RN program.

    I have been interested in learning more about ISU. How do the clinicals work and how long do they last? Thanks for any help.

    ISU clinicals are done locally and over the program you do 495 hours and it ranges from 45-135hours per semester. The area you do your clinicals in goes along with the classes you are taking that semester. If you have anymore questions about you can ask me I am just starting phase II and am working on finding a clinical site.

    I started phase 2/3 (doing both at the same time) in January. What are you taking? I'm taking Transition LPN to BSN, Research for Nursing, Nursing in Mental Illness and Health Assessment. Glad to have an ISU classmate here to help answer questions.

    How do you like the ISU program? Is that the online program w/ clinicals assigned in your area? About how long is it going to take you to complete the program, and what courses had you completed before starting it? Thanks for the info!

    Hi Amye,Congrats on making it to phase II. How long did it take you to finish all of you phase I classes? I know you said you were having a hard time finding clinical sites? What problems are you having? any info will be a great help. I am In Cali, I had pretty much all of my pre reqs finished, I am just finishing up the pre reqs forISU so I should be entering phase II soon. Thanks.

    Is the tuition expensive @ ISU, do they accept financial aid & are there any other pre-req's?

    Thanks for addressing my concerns.
