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.

    Stupid site... posted reply to Amee and it got eated. Amee37, I think I used to work with you at a SNF in St Charles that goes by initials. How do you like Excelsior so far? I'm thinking of doing an online bridge program too. There aren't too many out there.

    Hi
    I'm in a 1 year accelerated program in Cape Girardeau, MO. It is about 1 1/2 hours south of St. Louis. If you have some of your pre reqs done it could be shortened to 10 months. Just FYI in case anyone is interested. Nice college, also has a 2 year program for new nurses, a surg tech and radiology tech program. Southeast Hospital College of Nursing & Health Sciences. I'm pretty happy here.

    Not sure- the only one I know of in St. Charles with initials is NHC but never worked there although I interacted with nursing a bit. As far as Excelsior, I love it so far, there is the CPNE but I think I've enough time to prepare. See earlier posts also! Good luck- if you decide to take that route, PM me 'cause I've got some great stuff to study.
