Since graduating from TCHSVN in January of 2009, I've been telling myself that I'm going to go back to school to get my RN (I have all the pre-req's for it). My husband works pipeline out of town 6 days a week, and a nine month old at home kinda restricts my extra time. Therefore, I have been unable to commit going back to school; plus, I live an hour away from the two nearest community colleges.
I'm very interested in an online LVN to RN transition program, but there aren't many options to choose from. I had heard about the Angelo State program, but there website says they are no longer offering that. I actually was accepted into the Lamar State College Port Arthur online program this past January, but they require BIOL 1322, nutrition, which I just HAPPENED to not have (go figure), and couldn't get into a class prior to their deadline.
So THAT didn't happen, but they said as soon as I get that Nutrition credit under my belt, I can re-apply for January 2014.
Today, I'm looking around the internet for this BIOL 1322 credit class, and I just happen to go to LSCPA website, now THEY have this posted:
Future start dates have been put on hold until further notice. Students currently enrolled in the program will be permitted to finish the program.
WTH does that mean?!?! First, I started this thread to see if there was anyone who had completed this and what was their opinion, plus any suggestions for me...but NOW...I'm kinda freaking out because this was just about my last hope.
I'm tired of doing the same exact work and having to have the exact same credentials as the RN but getting paid a fraction of the RN salary! UGH...so frustrating.
(sorry about the ranting at the end...)
