Hi all! I have been lurking for several years trying to take in as much info as possible. I am currently an LPN, licensed for about 9 months. I am trying to decide what my next educational step should be. I got my LPN at a tech school, that just recently started a bridge program. It is not currently accredited through the NLN, however in the informational session, they said they were working on it. The program is a year long, and they have even formed a contract with a Univ. To accept RN-BSN students. My other option would be Indiana State Online. I want my RN like now, but a lot of jobs say must be a graduate from a NLN or CCNE program. I also have a 3 year old and a infant that I need to help support. I could do the tech school, but would have to work off shifts! Any advice or input to help me weigh my options would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

I think you should wait for you current school to be accredited, it would not take you long to finish and you would get in with no problem. Although online colleges are great and you have a young child you may want to think about how long it will take your school to get accredited vs the time it will take you to finish at the other school.
