Are there any LPN programs that take into consideration past degrees. For example, a B.S. in Health Science covers some of the same course work included in an LPN certification, however, I have not found any programs willing to consider this. If not, does anyone know of any accelerated LPN programs (6 or 8 months)? I have had no luck in my search.

The program I am finishing up in a couple of weeks was an accelerated 10 month program. I can't even wrap my brain around a 6 or 8 month program, especially if prereqs are included in the program. Don't do that to yourself if such a program exists.

I thought every nursing program was accelerated. Nursing school is tough We go through 6 chapters in Fundamentals, 2 chapters in drug cal., and 10+ skills each week.  It's stressful. After attending LPN program for just over 2 months, I am ready to quit. I might drop and study till Jan and start full force in the program again in January. Good Luck. One last thing. It is very unorganized too. They barely teach us skills that we need to know for the nclex.  I am discouraged at the moment.
