Online LVN to RN program in TX

  1. Was planning to enroll with Lamar State but they got in trouble with the BON so now they only offer in class only.
    I live too far away to apply to WGU.
    I don't trust ISU - I read on their website after you fail a test once you have to get College Network study guides & show proof. Plus when I put in my info to find out more about ISU, TCN wouldn't stop calling me.
    I can't mentally handle Excelsior.
    I know there is Allegeny but I don't know anyone who has used this program & it seems like there are a bunch of hoops to jump through to get in.
    So are there any other online bridge programs that I didn't list?

    One more came to mind: Hutchinson. LPN to RN Online Bridge | Hutchinson Community College

    It does require "6 or 7 trips for 6 or 7 days" to Kansas for clinicals, FAQ is here: Nursing FAQ | Hutchinson Community College

    It may be more hoops than other programs, but it's another option. I know, it's not exactly Texas. lol

    Lol. Thank you. It looks like I'll just have to wait until my baby is older & I'll go to the community college in town.

    No one can say you didn't do all your research!! But local is probably best, sounds like. Good luck!

    Lol that's true! Thank you!
    I wish there were more online bridge options in TX or evening classes where I live.

    I'm in the same boat as you! I wish somewhere local would offer night classes with night or weekend clinicals!

    It's so frustrating! I understand nursing is more business oriented but wouldn't they make more money if they had evening/online classes with evening clinicals? Not everyone can go to school full time. Most of us have kids and/or need to work. Ugh!
