Long story short, has anyone completed an online LPN->BSN prgram? If so, where, tution, quality of program, pre-reqs, etc. So far, I have searched and have found Indiana state university and Walden ( I think I prefer Indiana State University).
I have taking all of the pre-reqs at a local community college here in NC for a university transfer BSN program while enrolled as a pre-ADN student. My plan was to go from ADN -> Masters or BSN.
Now with a baby on the way and my husband makes too much, at this time, for financial aide, not having family near by to help with the infant, etc. I have decided that the LPN option would be better for this phase of my time. Having my LPN would pay off economically b/c I am tired of near minimum wage as a CNA. Plus, taking one class in three semesters works out well time wise with raising a family as opposed to the three plus classes in the ADN program, not to mention the tuition.
Please, honest and non biased opinions and experiences towards LPNs, or ADNs. We are ALL NURSES!
One more last question:
If I complete my LPN program and pass the NCPLEX, can I turn around and take the NCLEX on my own and pass to get my RN with out going through a BSN program?
Thank you again!
