- by Kozmo0812 Aug 5, '08Hello everyone - I'm new to the site....... I just graduated on Friday from LPN school (I take my boards next month - wish me luck!!) but am planning to move to NC ( Charlotte area ) next year and I want to start looking into RN schools - does anyone have any advice where to go? Community College would be ideal (Again, I just graduted - I'm not making any money yet!! haha).. thanks again, Jacqueline
- Aug 7, '08 by prosperouschickMercy School of Nursing will be starting an LPN-to-RN bridge program this fall. I'm not sure how well publicized it is, but you may want to contact the school. I believe your other options would be applying to the community colleges in the area (and perhaps starting as a 2nd year student???).
- Aug 7, '08 by fitnessangel25I am a graduate of Mercy School of Nursing and would recommend the school as well. While I cannot speak for their LPN program b/c it is new and started after I graduated, I can recommend the school and instructors. Also, the class that just graduated had a 100% passing rate on NCLEX Also if money is a concern, they hospital CMC does offer a 80/20 loan payback that pays for 80% of your tuition if you agree to work for them after graduation. I know this plan is in place for the RN program but am not sure if they are offering it for the bridge but I would assume so. Good luck to you!
- Aug 8, '10 by SmrowleI am in the exact same situation. I went to school in Illinois for two years, hated it and now my fiance and I are moving to Charlotte and money is tight while trying to get into nursing school. Which hospital should I contact that offers a 80/20 loan payback so I can get in touch with them?
- Aug 9, '10 by ObtundedRNQuote from SmrowleIt's Carolina's medical center that offers the loan. They offer it to students at their school (carolinas college of health sciences) and students at Mercy school of nursing. Just be careful with the loan. If you're not able to get a job with the hospital after graduation, then you have to repay the loan as if you broke the agreement. Taking the 80/20 loan doesn't assure you a job after graduation.I am in the exact same situation.

You can check out the websites for each to find out more.
