I was looking into several Nursing school programs and recieved a booklet regarding mineral area college. I am confused because there are a couple of option and one just makes no sense to me. You can eith go the regular Rn route or do the LPN-RN route I was told you'll take the boards to become a LPN then brige into the RN program? What wouln't this cost more and take longer? can anyone explain this to me? has anyone been through the Mineral Area College program the NCLEX scores on the Nursing board seem to be really good I really like the school but Im a little confused andit will be a week before I can get into the advising meeting. If any Nurse is a grad from this school please clear this up for me! Thanks So much!
