First off, a little background, I have a great job with the feds that I'd prefer not to leave until I finish up the schooling required to become an RN-BC. I already have a MS in Health Systems so I'm really just looking at programs that focus on practical skills.
That being said, what do you guys think about online LPN-RN programs? Can they actually be completed online or do you have to do an inperson practicum. Do they qualify you to take the NCLEX exam and become an RN?
I ask because I've found an a close inperson night program for an LPN degree, but haven't been able to find a similar RN program in my area. I'm considering taking the LPN class and then get my RN online. This leads to a second question - does anyone know if these programs make you work as an LPN while finishing up the online RN?
Thanks so much!
