Hi all. I am finishing up all of my core classes for the LPN to RN program this Fall and hoping to get into the accelerated program next summer. My question is for those of you who have already been accepted into your nursing program. Did you find that it was easier to gain acceptance since you were already an LPN? I recently took the NLN and scored in the 96th percentile so I am relatively sure that will help, but my GPA for the classes used to choose candidates is only a 3.0. I'm just wondering if already being an LPN gives you an edge over other candidates who have no previous nursing experience. I am really hoping that it will potentially help me to possibly be chosen over some higher GPA's since I graduated from the LPN program at the same school I am pursuing my RN. What do you all think, does it help to be an LPN? Thanks in advance!
