There is a LVN to BSN program in California and some other states have the LPN to BSN. I too am considering enrolling in this program. The cost is 450 dollars per unit in California. I can email you the info that I got.

UOP 'recommends' a base of knowledge before you begin the LPN to BSN RN program. They evaulate any college credits you have and set up a curriculum to attain your degree. It takes 3 years for most LPNs.
It is very demanding. You have class one nite/week for 4 hours so you cover 15 weeks in 5 weeks. Some nursing classes will even be 7 weeks of class.
You will do lots of research and homework. Lots of people work 30-40 hours plus class and clinicals w/ some classes.
If you are serious about attending, I recommend buying HESI exam study guides, Pren-hall study guides, Mosby, Kaplan, NCLEX RN. Critical thinking skills are crucial.
........so think about and good luck!!

- Jun 27, '09 by raekaylvnI looked into this program. They only offer it at the Modesto campus (in CA). You go in once a week for theory, and I think clinicals are on the weekend? Not too sure on that point. But you can do the clinicals where you are. You have to have 6 months of full time working experience as an LVN, which is what got me. I can't find a decent LVN job anywhere. I'm not sure on tuition pricing. They also have a 2 year waiting list.
- Jul 3, '09 by tlc365I am doing this program too in Phx AZ and luv it I will grad in Dec 2010 and if I pass all the HESI tests I will be on the way to more open doors in nursing, can't wait!!!
