    TCN is not a school, they just sell study guides at OUTRAGEOUS prices.

    I would look in depth to both ISU, EC or WGU & see which one is a better fit for you. There are forums for each. There are of course pros & cons to both, in the end it comes down to you.

    I may be biased, but as an on campus ISU student and have interacted with several instructors that teach the online classes. I think that they are very approachable and sincerely care about the online students succeeding. There was a big issue with California State Univ. system cancelling the contract with ISU on short notice and leaving the students in the LPN-BSN program without clinical access in the state. Several instructors flew to California to provide clinicals for those students at the V.A. hospitals (not governed by the Cal. BON). I think that ISU would be a good choice, plus it is obviously approved for the state of Indiana since it is an Indiana school.
