    Congrats on finishing school, when I enrolled in the LPN to BSN program one of he requirements was that you had to have been a LPN for a year. I highly recommend getting some time under belt. Good luck with your studys..

    Depends on how many pre-req's you bring in and how many you still need. Most you can CLEP out of. After you start the program it is about 2 years.

    Sacramento is the only campus in Calif that offers the LVN to BSN program. Each state has it own admission requirement. The paperwork took about an hour, however, waiting for all the schools you attended to send transcripts can take up to 3 weeks. It is a great program, fast paced, but once you are done, it is a great feeling to know you have a BSN.

    I started this program 05/24/2011, and had been an LVN for only 3 years at the start time. My experience so far has been excellent. All of the Instructors have Masters Degrees or higher , the clinical rotations are hard if you work full time. We just finished our Acute Medical Surgical at Lodi Memorial Hospital, this was an amazing facility and our instructor is amazing!


    We attend classes for Theory one night a week from 6pm-10pm in Modesto CA, So far clinincals have been on the weekends .I am due to graduate 06/15/2015 and have completed 20 classes with only 10 more to go! Some of the classes are only 5 weeks while others are 9 weeks long. This program is a fast paced program with a lot of required study time involved, but you can do it! I statrted the program pregnant with twins. I delivered them and return back to school immediately, we have 4 kids total. I work full time at Kaiser Sacramento and I commute from Roseville, my drive is about 2 hours each way to class. I do not miss any of my kids activities! With that being said I sacrifice sleep and do all homework on my lunch break at work.

    Good luck!

    @ Ali, my name is Danee, I wanted to know how many days do you attend school on clinical days. Is it still your original 6-10 and weekends or is it just weekends? I am curious, I am debating about what school I want to attend.
