    CCP has an lpn-rn option. The LPNs joined our class during our second (out of four) semester.

    Thank 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 !

    I 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.

    Abington Dixon School of Nursing has a LPN to RN option.

    I currently attend the school and we had a few LPNs join as the first year went on. One in the first semester and one in the second semester.

    Brenda,
    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.

    Delaware County Community College has a program. It allows you to enter in the second year of the program. I believe you have to have a year of LPN experience. Their website is dccc.edu. Salem Community college in Salem, NJ also has one.
