It is very very very expensive and they are more interested in getting your money than about giving you a quality nursing education. They do not have tenured faculty and pay their instructors very poorly. Go to a community state college...its much cheaper. What you do pay goes to the faculty and for resources for the university, not a bunch of businessmen who want to get rich who run UofP.
- 0Dec 1, '11 by tlc365not sure about your facts on this HazelLPN, as an alumni of U of P on campus..not ONLINE nursing program at Phoenix AZ. I had all Masters to Doctorate level professors and was very confident in their ability to provide me with what I paid for. I was challenged in the program and still had a 3.7 GPA. I completed the program in under 3yrs. I would have waited 2yrs just to get into a local community college and still only had my ADN. I am a proud graduate and would not do it differently. Just my

UOP 'recommends' a base of knowledge before you begin the LPN to BSN RN program. They evaulate any college credits you have and set up a curriculum to attain your degree. It takes 3 years for most LPNs. It is very demanding. You have class one nite/week for 4 hours so you cover 15 weeks in 5 weeks. Some nursing classes will even be 7 weeks of class. You will do lots of research and homework. Lots of people work 30-40 hours plus class and clinicals w/ some classes. If you are serious about attending, I recommend buying HESI exam study guides, Pren-hall study guides, Mosby, Kaplan, NCLEX RN. Critical thinking skills are crucial. ........so think about and good luck!!
- 0Nov 6 by chaiveeHi!! I know your post has been 3+ years old however, I am highly considering the lvn to bsn program at UoP at this Salida, CA campus and I would LOVE and appreciate your feedback about the program. If you prefer to communicate via email, that would be great too. Anything would help to aid me in this decision making! I've been an LVN for 3 years now and ready to go back to school.

I've been an LVN for 3 years now and ready to go back to school.I am in this program in Modesto (CA) and LOVE IT! It is not some easy online program. You MUST go to class AND you MUST be serious about your learning and study hard.
After every class you take a HESI exam. You get one try to pass per class. BUT of those schools who take the HESI test after each course ... they have awesome NCLEX-RN pass-rates!
I sat on a wait list for 1 and a half years, but it was well worth the wait. In just over a year I will have a BSN and be sitting for the NCLEX-RN.
For those who complain about how much work it is .... it is an RN program after all ... its gonna be hard no matter what school you go to!
I highly recommend this program and no I don't work for the school, haha! Feel free to email or instant message me any time.
