Need thoughts and opinions on Achieve Test Prep Lpn to Rn program? Unfortunately where I live I do not have access to many bridge programs. This or Excelsior are my only opinions. I need honest opinions on costs and the actually circulum! Thanks in advance!

Achieve Test Prep is not a school- it's an exam company that can help with getting credit for college courses, but it is not an actual nursing program. Before you use them, be sure any school will accept them. Always read the * fine print:

* Achieve Test Prep is a college education consultant and test preparation center that helps you earn your degree faster. Achieve Test Prep is not a college and does not issue degrees or give college credit. The programs listed above and elsewhere on this website (e.g. BSN Bridge Programs) are test preparation programs offered by Achieve Test Prep to prepare you to take exams from an independent accredited college, or an independent testing center, to enable you to earn your degree (BSN or ASN as the case may be) from such college. While Achieve Test Prep is an expert on the policies and procedures of many colleges, nonetheless, we do not have any affiliation or agreement with those colleges and the final decisions about credits and degrees rests with the colleges. You must independently apply for, and be accepted into a college.

I guess a better question would be is ATP worth the extra cost vs going straight to EC study on own.? THANK YOU FOR YOUR RESPONSE

You will first need to find out if the school will accept ATP and if they limit what classes they will grant credit for when using ATP. You will need to contact the school directly and speak with someone who is in the know so that you can be in the know before spending any money- you may not get accurate and up to date information from posters here. Is it worth the extra cost? I can't answer that as I have zero experience with either EC or ATP.
