LPN to RN Programs?Register Today!
- by jamie1990 Jul 27, '11Hello, I will be graduating this spring with an associate's degree in the applied science of practical nursing which will allow me to take the boards to become a LPN. I want to continue my education and receive my BSN. I'm from North Dakota but I want to make a change and I plan on moving to the Washington or Oregon area. I was wondering if anyone could suggest some schools in that area that offer a BSN program for LPN's with an associate's degree. Any help would be much appreciated!
- Jul 27, '11 by grownuprosieI dont know of any that will allow LPN- BSN in western WA. There are a bunch of LPN-RN (1 yr) and RN-BSN(~1 1/2 yr). If you end up here, you may need to go the LPN-RN-BSN route. Good news is that with your associates degree you have probably done all of the pre-reqs for the programs out here already so you can just jump in. Maybe there will be better luck in eastern WA or OR. Good Luck!

- Jul 27, '11 by jamie1990Thank you both for your help! I suppose the LPN-RN-BSN route wouldn't be that bad. It seems as if it would take the same amount of time, I'd just be hopping from school to school...

Good luck where ever you go!
- Jul 28, '11 by jamie1990Yikes! A little out of my price range, but thanks all the same
- Jul 28, '11 by jamie1990what about programs that are just LPN to RN without a BSN?
- Jul 28, '11 by grownuprosieThey are really affordable. Most of the CCs offer LPN-RN at a really affordable rate. I think it is like 3k for the year if you are a state resident.
