LPN to RN programs IN St Louis, mo

  1. 0
    I am looking for LPN-RN programs in St Louis Missouri. I tried the community college a while ago, but they make you take so many additional classes by time you get done with the pre reqs it ends of taking 2-3 years and you only have a ADN. I really want something that's not going to take forever.

    i have not been able to find any bridge programs that are quick. sanford brown use to have a nine-month program, but not anymore. i looked into excelsior, but they do not accept student loans for lpn-rn so you pretty much have to pay cash or get personal loans. chamberlain college takes just as long as community college had a friend just graduated. i am still searching if you find any information please share

    There was a thread going for an online pn-rn program. I believe it still had online openings. Check out prattcc.edu (Pratt community college) the phone is 620-450-2257. I don't know any info except what I've read. Its definately in a previous thread though.

    Hello,
    I'm an LPN doing Excelsior- have passed 4 already 1st try (A's and B's) in the past 2 months. I don't have time to wait and, since I have a BS in something else, it doesn't make sense to go back for a traditional ASN. A lot of the exams so far focus on critical nursing actions based on the knowledge base you study for (the meds, dx., s/s, etc.)- if you've been a nurse for awhile, it isn't so bad. So far, it's been great. I am also looking for anyone interested in getting together/sharing study notes (I have some great ones!) and also brushing up on clinical skills (have a "kit' and DVD's to practice as you must do by the book and not forget something!) for CPNE. Also will be looking for someone to share costs for a workshop, the CPNE, etc. Anyone interested or doing Excelsior right now, I would love to hear from you! - St. Louis MO Excelsior Student

    For ned2bnurse:
    You can find out a lot on the web site, www.excelsior.edu. You can pay as you go (I do) but they also have payment plans. I know you can apply for FA as well. I have not bought any textbooks- I use the library at my local CC. I did buy a current Mosby's- that and my old Taber's from long ago are great references. There are also a lot of materials on E-Bay. So, my cost for materials/texts so far are pretty nil.
