Lamar State College LVN to RN

  1. Any one in this program? I am looking it to it as it is the cheapest option I have found... Seems a lot like excelsior with the exception on clinicals (how do they do them?)????

    You must be a Texas resident for at least one year before applying. At least that's what was told to me. What they also told me is that clinicals are done locally in Texas, and you pay as you go.

    I am also looking for someone who has done this program. It seems to be a little better than Excelisor, because of the way the clinicals are done. I got all the basic info. It sounds good.

    I am currently taking the program. The program is very fast paced. Each class is about 5 weeks long. You have several assignment's due each week. I was in the LVN-RN program in HCC and had to drop out for medical reasons. Then I decided to do this on-line program. I use to think that HCC was hard. Now compared to this program, HCC is a piece of cake. From my personal experience I would recommend you go to a local college, where you attend a class. If you do not have that option because of your circumstance then you can do this program. Be ready to study and work for many many hours. I am currently half way through the program

    Thanks for the info. I applied to three schools in my area. Two of them I didn't get in and the other I got alternate. Most of my college hours are online, so I have no problems with assisgnments and my job is encouraging the online program because they don't have to work around school hours. I willadmitt a little scared because I don't know to expect. Looks like I might start in June if not then, it will be September, GOOD Luck to you
