- 0May 27, '08 by zeroveroHi everyone,
my husband is 7 weeks away from geting his lvn degree...so i have been lookin at schools for him. Here in CA things are a bit crazy, maybe it's the same way all around the country. it seems that he can't get in any of the anatomy, physio and micro classes so we have been looking all around for schools, even as far as St Kitts
Anyway i came across UOP and i have a question for the students in it already. Can he take human growth and development at a community college or does it have to be through uop?
We are looking at the AZ and CO uop. I'm an RN already so we can move where ever needed for him.
what other classes should he take in order to minimize the General education classes he would have to take w/ uop? (he has intro to psy, intro to sos, developmental psy, history, spanish, english, pol sci,)
any help or info is more than welcomed.

Chico State is one of the best programs in the nation; DO NOT turn this down! It's especially cheap, only 8,000 for the whole program, which is going to be a fraction of what online LVN-BSN programs will offer. Many nursing students would kill for a spot in any BSN program, let alone Chico State.Hello fellow Nurses!
I am a new LVN grad with just about 2 months experience working at a Subacute Pediatric facility. I wanted to get some feedback regarding "Online" LVN-BSN programs. For those of you who have that experience online...please share...Reason being is that I got accepted into an "Online" LVN-BSN program at Chico State University. I would start in Fall 2008 if I accept. A friend of mine who graduated with me from my VN Program also got accepted so we'd have eachother as study buddies throughout the program. I want to get feedback and other ppl's opinions because I want to make sure I am making the right decision. What was your experience going through an LVN-BSN program online? Or what is your opinion on "online" lvn-bsn programming?
Thank you in advance!!!
I have to let the director of nursing know by May 17th of my decision.

Tuition is $10,000 per year. They'll set you up with a finacial officer for Pell grant, student loans... I think I payed $130 to start the process. No entrance exam but an interview with the vice president. Go for it. It's 3 yrs of intense work. Very stessful but we had a lot of fun too. The instructors were great.
- 0Jul 17, '11 by bloodlikefireok people here is the deal,
i am in my last 6 months of the lvn-bsn program at the modesto (ca) campus of university of phoenix (uopx). all pre-requisites must be 5 years or newer or your will be forced to retake them. you will be told that you will never need to buy a book in this school. that is a flat out lie.
i got most of my pre-req's to transfer and it still cost me a little over 35k for the 3-4 years of classes. classes meet once a week with clinical being 1-2 more days a week depending on instructor availability. the program here in cal is the newest (i think), and they are having a ton of issues with finding and keeping professors.
the school is currently switching new classes over to ati testing for exit exams. almost all clinical classes have a pass/fail test at the end of them.
be very careful and double check everything for yourself that the staff at a uopx school tells you, most of them are well-meaning but don't know jack. i truly cannot wait to finish school in dec and never have to see these people again.
