hey everyone! I am pretty new to using this website..well besides reading posts. I just graduated in December as a LPN and am wanting to get my RN (ASAP). I have researched some schools.. BallState for the LPN-BSN would take me 3-4 years--even with all my credits I already have! not to mention the lady i met with was so rude to me!
TCN is absolutely not a choice for me. I have looked into Excelsior, but being a brand new nurse without hospital experience (I work in a nursing home) I am not too sure about that with only 3 clinical days at the end. I've also looked into Harrison College in Indy (since they ARE accredited now)..but have not heard back from them, so not sure how long it takes etc. I read online that MedTech in Fort Wayne IS accredited for the RN program now..but I am still iffy about that too. WGU takes 2.5 years for the BSN and I don't want to take that long..I have about 98 college credits already.
Ivy Tech did not accept me for the LPN-ASN program in my region
From what I have heard they did not accept as many people due to losing teachers.. My number one choice would be to go back to Ivy tech because it is cheaper.
**Can anyone in Indiana tell me if their region offers the LPN-ASN transition in January 2014?! I think I missed the application deadline for fall 2013. I really do not want to wait until May 2014 to start the RN program...I wouldn't be a RN until May 2015 then
Any replies and/or advice would be greatly appreciated! I would love to hear your experiences with any of these colleges/programs. Thanks!!
