Online LPN Programs?

  1. Good Day all! I came accoss this forum the other day and I was so impressed with the wealth of knowledge you all have. I'm new on this forum and I would like to ask if you can recommed any Online LPN or RN programs. I do not have any prior nursing training and would like to get started.

    I have seen the Chamberlain program, and I will call them tomorrow. I do think their pretty pricey though. The Kaplan University is still not accepting students into the program as it has not been approved by their regional accredidation as of yet. I'm hoping there are other alternatives. Thank you all in advance.

    Chamberlain is suppose to discontinue the lpn portion of their program. You now have to go the entire two full years for the RN program.
    What state are you in? Many programs just depend on your current location.

    Thank you for your reply - I am in New York and spoke with Chamberlain and they said that NY is one of the 7 states that do not allow their students to do the clinicals... Now that option is even out --- I'm hoping you can recommend others.

    You are in the same geographic area I am in, which doesn't leave you with many options.
    I'm not sure if you are close to Jersey or not, but I did see a nice program there were you only had to go to school on Wednesdays for clinical. Everything else was online. I'll try to find the school, but I believe it was something like Ocean Community College or something.
    Other than that, I'm really stumped. I'm in Western PA and I can't find anything around here either.
    Good luck.

    Thanks for trying to help me out --- I would love to find something that would be totally online, but it seems impossible now - unless Kaplan University gets the approval their waiting on - the program seems so long though.
