Your post is almost a year old, but I'm just now finding it...Apparently this is a question nobody here seems to be able to answer. I think it's a good question...and there seems to be a lot of confusion about 30 unit option in general. Lately I'm thinking I'll just call the California BRN and ask them! After that, maybe I'll call the board in Utah or somewhere and see what they have to say about it! sheesh...it really shouldn't be this difficult...since your post is so old...may I ask? Did you ever get a satisfactory answer from anyone outside these forums?
I would just like to add that I also was told that the 30 unit option is "it", and you can't change it. When I mentioned this to my college counselor, she informed me that you CAN go on for a BSN. You just can't go back and obtain an ADN. (I guess I get that the Board [in all it's God-given authority] won't change what's on your licesnse, but frankly, none of it makes much sense to me, ...) I'm almost 54, and obtained my LVN through a hospital-based program over 20 years ago. This simply means I had NONE of the prerequisites for an ADN program, so that route would have taken "forever"... Like JailRN above, I am "an old lady in a hurry" and will probably not need to worry about whether I can practice in any other state as an RN. My only question is: Is my counselor right? She should know, shouldn't she? It almost doesn't matter, because I've discovered that I love school so much that I will get a bachelor's degree anyway...even if it's not in nursing. Hey...the way I see it, I'm not getting any younger, and won't be able to drag these tired old legs around a hospital forever, but I'm still going to need money, right? And it's not like we're going to retire on a pension! Maybe I'll learn to do something less stressful on the old bod...a college degree might make that possible.
But still...can anybody out there confirm what my counselor told me? I would really like to put that to bed once and for all...
