Once you know all your options, it will make the decision that works for you easier to make, with your current schedule, cost, classes needed, etc. I chose the program and school I did out of convenience, but it really has worked out for the best for me and no regrets at all. For all of us, it is fortunate that at least we have a few options out there.Yes, It helped a lot. I will look into all the LPN-RN programs available. I have 60 college gen. ed credits.
It will ball-down to me staying at OU and continue toward the BSN....or......finding a LPN-RN bridge program.
Best wishes in your studies....
0Apr 4, '11 by mshaw23Quote from nursestyle1How hard is it to get into their LPN-RN program? Can you complete it online?I appreciated everyone's in put in this discussion that I started. Forums like this is really a great way to gather and share information. Thank you, I don't believe anyone should be offended by anything said, these forums give us a voice that we otherwise would not have. Nursing is hard work and as a Nurse I can tell you support of fellow nurses and other students is a pleasure to have.
Accreditation is a factor for me to consider as narrow down my search of nursing schools. But, my reality is....the demand is so high for the nursing student....and because schools have limited seats, I most likely will attend the best program that will except me. I have heard good and bad of all the area nursing programs, I believe no program is perfect.
As far as employment goes, I work for the VA (Veteran Hospital) a Federal Government Facility and plan on retiring there as a RN. I have double checked with recruitment and the VA only requires a Nursing License and Graduation from a State Approved program, which I already knew because I graduated as an LPN from a
non-accredited state approved program from another state. As far as moving out of Michigan, the VA also does not require you to obtain licenses from state to state. You can work at any VA Facility in the US, as long as you hold a licensed from in any state in the US territory. I currently work in Michigan and do not have a Michigan License.
I revisited the Baker's LPN-RN program at AH, it doesn't seem like much of "Bridge" program and I noticed it requires more credits then the regular ADN program. (Not sure what that is all about) ? Maybe someone here has more details about it and it's benefit.
Could someone explain to me Quarters vs Semesters? Someone in this discussion expressed that she preferred quarters vs semesters.
