Senior in HS. LVN, RN, Bridge program?! Help!

  1. Hi! Hopefully I am posting in the correct category and that someone will be able to answer my questions. I'm a senior in high school and I would like to become an RN, however there are so many options I have no idea where to start. Keeping this short, I am not sure whether to become an LVN and do a bridge program.... or just keep it simple and find a nursing program (ASN). Things I would like to mention are: I hate prerequisites and I would LOVE to keep them to a minimum or not at all, I would like to finish in as little time as possible, I live in Southern California. Another question I have is, Is it possible to graduate high school, become an LVN, bridge program, and become an RN... and avoid prerequisites? Someone PLEASE help me out! Thanks!

    Im not sure about the pre-req questions but I can definitely relate to not liking them!! I did an lpn program first and if you pass the entrance test ( depending on the school) you probably can skip a lot of pre req's. That is what I did... I am now in a bridge program to RN... so I cant really avoid the pre req's which sux
    good luck with ur decisions.

    With the routes you're talking about, I do not think you can avoid prereqs. As a senior in high school, my recommendation would be to find a college/university that has a nursing major and do a traditional 4 year BSN. Everything that's a "pre-req" at other schools in built into the curriculum in these programs.
