LPN to RN Schools in/near Philadelphia?Register Today!
- by misdetermined Sep 19, '09Hi, I am a LPN student about to graduate in 4 months and was wondering if anyone knew of a LPN to RN school in the area? I am willing to do online but I would prefer classroom setting and I am looking for a Fulltime/ fastest route to RN. Any comments or suggestions are welcome.. Thanks
- Sep 22, '09 by lovenandj, RNCCP has an lpn-rn option. The LPNs joined our class during our second (out of four) semester.
- Sep 24, '09 by misdeterminedThank you for that info, I heard that there is such a waiting list for CCP and DCCC and they only let a certain amount of LPN per class. But I will look into it to get my own info....Thanks !
- Sep 24, '09 by lovenandj, RNI can't say for sure about the LPN admissions, but I do know that some people believe that CCP regular admissions has a waiting list. There is NO waiting list for the regular (non-LPN) admissions, so maybe the same goes for the LPN admissions.
And, with any program they are only going to let in a certain amount of students...
And actually, I've heard that it is possible to only be required to complete the last 2 semesters, but you must be able to pass the maternity/OB portion of the placement exam. Again, this is just info I've heard from some of my LPN classmates.
- Sep 24, '09 by misdeterminedThats great info, Im about to go on their website to check it out...thanks again.
- Sep 24, '09 by bellylovelyHello I am also a lpn student, and I would like to know is it just one year for lpn-rn at ccp, and what are gpa requirements? Do you have to take a test to opt out of nursing 101? Have CCP always had this program lpn rn route or its fairly new? any info would be much appreciated thanks

I am also an EMT in PA. I'm in the process of applying to Pennsylvania Institute of Technology in Media for their LPN class starting in January 2011.
