Looking for any information on this program. I've been an LPN for 8 yrs & it's always been my plan to go on to be an RN. I would apply to my local college's traditional RN program, but from what I've heard it's impossible to work & complete the program. Also they have a 5yr time limit on your sciences & with as many times as I've had to start & stop & then start again, some of my science classes will be older than this. I'll have an associates in allied health in December so I think I'll only lack a statistics class & a gen Ed class on the 3000 or 4000 level to have all the prerequisites done. I'm really curious as to how much time is spent on a campus, what the clinicals are like & where you have to do them at, & how difficult it is to get into one of the mobility programs. I am an ADvantage case manager at a home health agency & my administrator is aware of my intentions to go back to school & is really supportive with flexibility of my schedule, I've been there almost 6yrs. Any help, advise, or insight is greatly appreciated.
If you have an associates then you will not be required to to take any extra Gen.. Ed courses (just can't be in applied science). You manage your clinical schedule. Most lpns use their place of employment and for clinicals and do it while on the clock. Which is acceptable. You have class once a month Saturdays only! The rest of the work is online. As long as you meet the requirements then you are accepted into the program. You can pm if you have any more questions. I just talked to the advisor Monday and she cleared up at lot of my questions. They even went over my transcript with me. I've got 4 more classes to take. Call and schedule an appt. with the advisor, she's wonderful.

Wow, thank you so much! This really helps ease my mind on a lot of things. Do you remember the advisors name that you spoke with? Also, have you taken the NLN ACE II tests yet? Those really scare me, I'm afraid I won't study all the right stuff. Thanks again for your help
You're Welcome. Talking with her really put my mind at ease. I haven't taken those test yet, I'm still in LPN school. The advisor's name is ****. She's the only advisor for the college of nursing! Margret should be ale to suggest some good study material for those tests.
