    Hello everyone! I'm currently starting LPN schooling in Jan. I have every intention on getting my RN after. I have been looking at schools online that provides you to get your RN after your LPN online has anyone continued their education this way? What are your opinions on these schools? Thanks for any information.Has anyone went to one of these schools? Is it strictly online or do you have a class you need to go to?

    I worked with a nurse who went from LPN to ADRN to getting her BSN in less than two years while working 8am-430pm Mon-Fri. It was stressful and made for many late nights studying but she did great. If I'm not mistaken, she went through Excelsior.

    Wow that's wonderful! I'm very lucky when it comes to not having to work while I go to school. But then again it puts more pressure on me cause I don't have a reason why I shouldn't be getting great grades.

    Hi @Yuvonne, I have been a lpn for almost 7 years and will be starting a Rn program this may. I have looked into almost ever program there is out there. I would recommend requesting information from the schools you are interested in. One online program is through excelsior college. They are accredited but don't offer financial aid. Another good option is applying to a lpn-rn program. You will have to have some colllege courses completed to start, but typically only takes a year or 18 months to complete. You will also get hands on experience through clinicals. Online programs mostly offer no more than two weeks of clinicals for the entire program at the end of the program. Good Luck!

    I just recently graduated from an online LPN-RN program. I do not reccommend going the online route for many reasons. If you are able to go to school and not work at the same time, go for it.
    I think the programs where you can get your LPN first and then continue on to get your RN are great. However, make sure that the classes you are taking will transfer to traditional universities for when you decide to get your BSN. Some RN's who are trying to get into BSN programs are having to take freshman level classes because credits from their ADN programs are not transferring.
    If the school you are going into offers a BSN program, I suggest going all the way. Get it done, you will be glad you did
