- 0Nov 1, '12 by dckoCONTACT YOUR SCHOOL ABOUT THE RN PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS. Every college in my area has different requirements. This particular community college that I am interested in applying to, requires that I have a CNA I and/or a LPN. If I wanted to be in advanced placement for the RN program, I would have to be an LPN with 3600 hours work experience within the past 4 years.
Because I need to possess either a CNA I or LPN, I registered into the CNA I course (just waiting to be accepted). But my question now is, should I continue on with the CNA course to get a CNA II? Or should I just keep the CNA I and continue with completing the prerequisites needed to apply into the RN program.
Any honest advice or experiences would be greatly appreciated.
