  1. Hey all!! Ok so I applied to ISU and i live in VA, hoping to get on the LPN-BS track. Anybody have any information about the program and how it is?? Distance learning wise?? I've heard nothing but good things about this program but I just wanted feedback before I get into something I can't get out of without wasting money. Anyone know if credits are transferrable??

    Please see the ISU "sticky" at the top of the page. It will help explain a little about ISU>

    P.S. ISU's program is great if you are self-motivated!

    Yes they are associated and have a contract with TCN. You need four of TCN's modules to test out of some of your classes.

    Not sure I understand your question. I've never had a problem with TCN at all. Their contract is sound and the deliver what they claim to and that is study guides. They don't claim to be a school. They're a publishing company and that's all they claim to be. Well, they also have a guarantee, a contract with some schools and academic support. People complain because of the expense and because they find something cheaper and then want to get out of a legally binding contract and can't (duh). If you do all your pre-reqs through TCN it will be more expensive then buying textbooks and doing it on your own but less expensive than a traditional college so as far as that goes it depends if money or time is more of an issue.

    ?? i dunno but i have all paperwork from them and it's really clear that they provide study guides and you test through clep, dsst, and excelsior. i really honestly don't understand why anyone who takes the time to read their literature and contract would be confused. it's all pretty black and white imo.

    oh i don't doubt that but when you talk to them on the phone or meet with them it's a different story . i met with them once for ec long time ago and i knew before hand they where a publishing company but they did everything they could just short of saying "we give you the degree" to make me think they where the degree granting institution. i personally think it's a rip off. thank the good lord for e-bay and half.com
