I'm not an LPN yet. I'm trying to get into the program. One other posibility: J Sargeant Reynolds. Their ADN looks great.
If it helps as a yardstick of sorts, I went for a ADN in VA (though not at J. Sargeant Reynolds). I had a prior BA, non-science major but a Biology minor.
All told, it took me 4 years: 2 for the program itself, 2 for pre-reqs. I do admit taking the pre-reqs one class at a time because I had a small child. Didn't work at all during those 4 years due to said small child.
I checked out the prereqs at some of the colleges. I've complete (or will have completed) most all the requirements. Keep in mind I won't be in school until Fall 2014. Some programs only start in the Spring (Sentara) so 2015 is the earliest. I'm really trying to get an RN somehow before my kids become school age. If I do a 4-semester program starting Fall 2014, by Spring 2016 they'll be only 3. I would prefer a BSN right off but if I get into a less expensive ADN (or if an LPN the LPN-BSN program) I'll take it. Also, I am going to be 38 this year. By Spring 2016 I'll be 41.
