    I'm an LVN. There are a few online programs for me and that may work for you. Please check out University of Oklahoma and go through the different programs to see where you may fit in to each program The University of Oklahoma College of Nursing - Academic Programs - Undergraduate If you do not believe you are above having to go in with the LPN's or pre-nursing programs, you can't beat their program for online ...under your circumstances...9 months to get your BSN with pre reqs done.

    Also there is Texas A&M College of Nursing & Health Sciences - Texas A & M University- Corpus Christi
    and South Dakota PC Virtual LPN to BSN Presentation College...you may have to just check to see where you fall into place with some of these institutions.

    If you have your pre reqs and received credit, also check out WGU BSN with RN License - Online RN Degree - Online Nursing School I am assuming you are still in Illinois?
    I hope you are able to work around any obstacles. It doesn't hurt to ask advisors in some of the above mentioned schools.

    Best of luck to you. I'm an LPN and have spent years looking and just now are there more nursing programs available to us. I think the biggest obstacle we have had is, Boards of Nursing who regulate and don't try to accommodate LVN's. Many of us have not only trained CNA's, LVN's but have trained RN's as well in various settings i.e.; dialysis.

    Best of luck to you. Hope this was helpful.

    I entered a BSN program without an associate's degree or diploma. Seems that it would depend upon the program. You probably will have to look until you find a program that will work with your circumstances.
