I had a heck of a time finding an LPN to RN program here in Cali. I kept searching and found Hondros in Ohio. It's about 20,000 compared to 68,000 program I found here. It's only 18 months. I'm thinking this is TOO good to be true. I welcome your comments. Does Michigan have any fast track RN schools?

Well, I hate to give you this info but they are not BON certified, which means when you try to take the NCLEX you will not be allowed to because this school has not received their stamp of approval. I was interested as well, but then I saw that they are not accredited. Thats only if you decide to pursue nursing in California. If you relocate you are all good.

California is very strict when it comes to licensing and money hungry, as well. They will make uo any excuse as to why you will need to retake things because it is not at standard. What goes on in other states, do not go on in California. Like the Excelsior program does not exist out here because the BON does not accept it. Just do your homework before going to out of state schools if you are planning to come back to California. There are a lot of people being denied ability to take the NCLEX because the out of state program does not meet the requirements of California State Programs.
Now, what you can do is go to their program and take boards there as well then endorse. Again, do your homework, call the board, then determine for yourself. Hope this helps.
