    What ever you don't do tcn..along with thoses other ones that are just a book store no degree will be given to you that way ....REMEMBER VA DOESN'T DO THEM... EC program the VA board doesn't even except anymore. Check with the community colleges and univ....I would just go for the RN. BECAUSE SINCE MANY HOSPITAL ARE TRYING TO GO MAGNET STATUS(money thing) and dont hire as much or some not at all unless its outpatient lpns. Being that you already did a year of schooling for lpn I bet you would rock in the a RN program information is fresher in your head....I'm NOT KNOCKING LPNS, I was an LPN AND BEFORE THAT I WAS A CNA....JUST HOW THE HOSPITALS HAVE GOTTEN. Thats why we will continue to have a shortage. But also its where you want to work, if you never see yourself working in a hospital then do the lpn first...alot has changed...that is why I went back and got my RN. There aren't alot of bridge programs left in the area. Since colleges realize that people coming to those program aren't all on the same level. And with the the fast track programs mainly private colleges they have gotten better and many are recongized and credits will carry over to a university such as kaplan and afew others. So do your homework....call the board....and check out the schools don't sign anything at any school until you have compared. Also ask about hesi's and exit hesi and if you need to pass the exit to leave the program to get your degree. Nursing schools are getting harder and harder. Also ask about if you aren't successful in a course and so on what is the game play there. Don't fall for the horse and pony shows. AND ASK ABOUT THE SCHOOLS PASS RATE AND HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE FINISHED THE PROGRAM.

    Not quite true. The VA BON will allow EC grads to endorse in with 960 hours (approximately 6 month) of RN practice time. Just wanted to make sure we're keeping it accurate here...
